Proto-GermanicEdit

EtymologyEdit

PIE root
*wert-

Possibly related to *werþaną, which would derive it from Indo-European *wr̥t(s)-tis, from Proto-Indo-European *wert- ‎(to turn). In this case the original meaning would have been "something twisted". Alternatively from *wr̥s-tis, from the root *wers- ‎(to mix up), which would make it "something mixed up, something mangled".
