Far-fetched

The term far-fetched has been in use in its current sense since the 1600s. It is a compound word, which is a word formed by joining two words together in order to form a new word. We will examine the definition of the expression far-fetched, where it came from and some examples of its use in sentences.

Far-fetched describes something that is unlikely, something outside the realm of possibility, something that stretches belief. Something that is far-fetched is usually considered to be an enormous exaggeration, a tall tale, or an outright lie. Far-fetched was first used in the latter 1500s to mean something that is brought from a faraway place. Note that the word far-fetched is properly rendered with a hyphen, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, although it is sometimes seen as two words, as in far fetched, or as one word, as in farfetched.
