EtymologyEdit

From Latin mergere, present active infinitive of mergō (itself ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *mesg- (to plunge, dip)), with a unique sense developing in Balkanic or Eastern Romance. Compare Aromanian njergu, njeardziri; cf. also Albanian mërgoj (to move away) and Sardinian imbergere (to push). There may have been an intermediate sense of "to fall" in earlier Romanian.[1]
