Ax Ax ([a^]ks), v. t. & i. [OE. axien and asken. See {Ask}.] To ask; to inquire or inquire of. [1913 Webster]

Note: This word is from Saxon, and is as old as the English language. Formerly it was in good use, but now is regarded as a vulgarism. It is still dialectic in England, and is sometimes heard among the uneducated in the United States. ``And Pilate axide him, Art thou king of Jewis?'' ``Or if he axea fish.'' --Wyclif. 'bdThe king axed after your Grace's welfare.'' --Pegge. [1913 Webster]
