Farewell   Listen
interjection
Farewell  interj.  Go well; good-by; adieu; originally applied to a person departing, but by custom now applied both to those who depart and those who remain. It is often separated by the pronoun; as, fare you well; and is sometimes used as an expression of separation only; as, farewell the year; farewell, ye sweet groves; that is, I bid you farewell. "So farewell hope, and with hope, farewell fear." "Fare thee well! and if forever, Still forever fare thee well." Note: The primary accent is sometimes placed on the first syllable, especially in poetry.
