Welded
Weld Weld, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Welded}; p. pr. & vb. n. {Welding}.] [Probably originally the same word as well to spring up, to gush; perhaps from the Scand.; cf. Sw. v["a]lla to weld, uppv["a]lla to boil up, to spring up, Dan. v[ae]lde to gush, G. wellen to weld. See {Well} to spring.] [1913 Webster] 1. To press or beat into intimate and permanent union, as two pieces of iron when heated almost to fusion. [1913 Webster]

2. Fig.: To unite closely or intimately. [1913 Webster]

Two women faster welded in one love. --Tennyson. [1913 Webster]
