The word rot originates in Old English word rotian. Later, it was adapted by Middle English as roten. When something rots, it is said to be undergoing decomposition. It is generally organic decomposition. For example: the cattle carcasses rotted in the open. Rot could mean 'to become weak or damaged because of decay. For example: the rods rotted because of moisture. When something disappears or falls by decomposition.

Rot is the process of decomposition or the state of being rotten. Rot also implies foot rot. It is a diseased condition that affects the legs of cattle. Rot also indicates plant diseases that cause the deterioration of the plant tissue. When some talks rot, he talks nonsense.
Rot is used as an interjection to show one's contempt or impatience with something.
