EtymologyEdit

From a Vulgar Latin *brusiāre[1], itself of uncertain origin; possibly from a form *p'rustiare < *per-ust(u)lāre, from Latin per + ustulāre[2] (compare perurere), or alternatively from a corruption of *combustulāre, from a change of prefix of ambustulāre, influenced by combustus; see ambūrēre. However, an Italian word brustolare (cf. abbrustolire), from a related root *brustulāre, from ustulāre, also exists[3]. The initial -br- may also be of Germanic origin. Compare French brûler (Old French brusler), Dalmatian brusur, Occitan bruslar, buizar, Romansch brischar.
