EtymologyEdit

From Old Polish drug, druch[1], from Proto-Slavic *drugъ, from Proto-Balto-Slavic *draugás, from Proto-Indo-European *dʰrewgʰ-. The "h" spelling was influenced by Ukrainian друг (druh) or Czech druh.

  This etymology is missing or incomplete. Please add to it, or discuss it at the Etymology scriptorium.
Particularly: “The source seems to say that "druh" is "drug" + -ch (like brach), such that only the spelling with -h instead of -ch would be influenced by Czech/Ukranian. Or is it simply a Czech/Ukranian form of the simple noun?”

  1. (literary) friend, companion
