EtymologyEdit

From Old Spanish, probably from the earlier destorvar, from Latin disturbāre, present active infinitive of disturbō[1], or less likely from Latin exturbō, exturbāre (drive out). Compare Portuguese estorvar, also Catalan and Occitan destorbar, Old French destorbar. Possibly a doublet of disturbar, a borrowing.
