Word Origin & History of - bring-down

    Word Origin & History

    bring O.E. bringan "to bring, bring forth, produce, present, offer" (p.t. brohte, pp. broht), from P.Gmc. *brenganan (cf. O.Fris. brenga; M.Du. brenghen; O.H.G. bringan; Goth. briggan); no exact cognates outside Germanic, but it appears to be from PIE base *bhrengk-, compound based on root *bher- (1) "to carry" (cf. L. ferre; see infer). The tendency to conjugate this as a strong verb on the model of sing, drink, etc., is ancient: O.E. also had a rare strong pp. form, brungen, corresponding to modern colloquial brung.
