GermanEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Germanic *þrukjaną (to press), *þrūganą (to threaten), from Proto-Indo-European *trūk-, *trūg- (to press, beat). Cognate with Dutch drukken (to press, print), Danish trykke (to press), English thrutch (to throng) and, outside Germanic, with Albanian ndryqem (to stretch). Closely cognate with German drücken (to press, push): drucken is originally the southern form; the first German printers were in the south.
