Sometimes the etymology of a given word (today's redoubtable) makes me smile. Like today's that starts as:
:"From Old French redoutable" which is just as old as the new French word redoutable and coming down to redouter still as old as it is new. Just a little comfort in the word speedy world.
So: dwo- !
