EtymologyEdit

fo- +‎ Proto-Celtic *kerdeti (to put, lay, move) (compare Middle Welsh kerdet, Welsh cerdded (to walk, go), Breton kerzed (a march, a walk), Cornish kerdhes (to go)), from Proto-Indo-European *kerd- (to swing) (compare Ancient Greek κραδαίνω (kradaínō, to swing), Latin cardō (hinge), Old High German scerdo (hinge)).

The prototonic forms of the present stem (·cuirethar etc.) are denominative from cor (putting, casting, throwing), from Proto-Celtic *koros (act of putting, casting, a throw), from Proto-Indo-European *(s)ker- (to turn).

The perfective and perfect forms (ro·lá etc.) are from ro- + Proto-Celtic *layo-, from Proto-Indo-European *leh₁- (Latin lētum (death); Old Church Slavonic лѣнъ (lěnŭ, lazy); Hittite [script needed] (laizzi, lets); Lithuanian liáutis (stop); Gothic 𐌻𐌴𐍅𐌾𐌰𐌽 (lēwjan, betray), 𐌻𐌴𐍅 (lēw, opportunity, cause)).
