PortugueseEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old Portuguese abrigo (a place where one is sheltered from the elements or harm), from abrigar, of disputed origin: possibly from Late Latin abrigare (to cover, shelter), from a- + brigare, from Frankish *berīhan (to cover, protect), from Proto-Germanic *bi- (be-) + *wrīhaną (to cover, clothe), from Proto-Indo-European *werḱ-, *werǵ- (to twist, weave, tie together). Cognate with Old High German birīhan (to cover), Old English bewrēon (to cover, enwrap, protect).

Late Latin abrigare may have also crossed with Old Frankish *bergan (to take care of, protect, hide), from Proto-Germanic *berganą (to care for), from Proto-Indo-European *bʰergʰ- (to take care), due to similarity in form and meaning[1]. If so, this would relate the word also to Old High German bergan (to shelter) (German bergen) and Old English beorgan (to save, preserve). More at borrow.

Alternatively, and more likely, the verb abrigar may be derived from Latin apricō, apricāre (warm in the sun), from apricus (sunny)[2].
