From Old French crachier (to eject from the mouth), from Vulgar Latin *craccare, of imitative origin, possibly via Germanic; compare Proto-Germanic *hrēkijaną (to spit, retch, vomit) and *krakōną (to make a cracking sound). See also Old English hrǣcan (to retch, cough up, spit), Old Norse hrǣkja (to hawk, spit), Old High German hrahho (throat, gorge), Lithuanian kregeti (dry heave, grunt).
