PronunciationEdit

Etymology 1Edit

PIE root
*bʰer-

From Middle Dutch baren. The a in the stem and the weak inflection are unetymological, but their origin is unknown. The form displaced the older strong beren (still found in modern ontberen), from Old Dutch *beran, from Proto-Germanic *beraną. Ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *bʰer-.

VerbEdit

baren

  1. (transitive) to bear, to give birth to
    • Zij heeft een zoon gebaard.
      She has borne a son.
  2. (transitive) to cause, to bring about
    • Dit baart me zorgen.
      This causes me worry.
InflectionEdit

The strong past participle geboren is also used, but only with the meaning "given birth, born".
