FrenchEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old French charier, carier (whence English carry, through Anglo-Norman), probably from a derivative of Old French char (cf. charrer), from Latin carrus, ultimately of Gaulish origin. Most likely of the same origin as charroyer, possibly from a Vulgar Latin *carriāre or *carreāre, but more likely from char. Compare Occitan carrejar, Italian carreggiare, Spanish acarrear; cf. also Romanian căra.

PronunciationEdit
