What is AID, V

To support, help, or assist. This word must be distinguished from its synonym “encourage,” the difference being that the former connotes active support and assistance, while the latter does not; and also from “abet,” which last word imports necessary criminality in the act furthered, while “aid,” standing alone, does not. See ABET.
