PronunciationEdit

Etymology 1Edit

From Middle English wrappen (to wrap, fold), of uncertain origin. Perhaps related to North Frisian wrappe (to press into; stop up), dialectal Danish vrappe (to stuff, cram), Middle Low German rincworpen (to envelop, wrap), Middle Low German wrempen (to wrinkle, scrunch the face), all perhaps tied to Proto-Indo-European *werp-, *werb- (to turn, twist, bend). Compare also similar-sounding and similar-meaning Middle English wlappen (to wrap, lap, envelop, fold), Middle Dutch lappen (to wrap up), Old Italian goluppare (to wrap) (from Germanic). Doublet of lap; related to envelop, develop.
