FrenchEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Middle French fange, from Old French fange (mud, addle, mire), from Gothic 𐍆𐌰𐌽𐌲𐌰 (fanga, mud, addle, mire), from Proto-Germanic *fangō (wetness, moisture), from Proto-Indo-European *penk- (mud, rot, filth). Cognate with Italian fango (mud, sludge) (from Germanic), German feucht (moist, damp), Dutch vocht (moisture, humidity), Old English fūht (moist, damp).

Alternative etymology derives the Old French word from Frankish *fani, *fanja (moor, swamp, mire), from Proto-Germanic *fanją (clay, mud, marsh), from Proto-Indo-European *pan- (mud, slush, morass), related to Old High German fenni (stagnant water, swamp, bog), Old English fenn (swamp, bog). See fen.
