French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle French tirer (to draw, draw a sword), from Old French tirer (to draw, pull out with great effort, snatch violently, tear away), of uncertain origin; possibly from Gothic *𐍄𐌹𐍂𐌰𐌽 (tiran, to tear away, remove), from Proto-Germanic *teraną (to tear, tear apart), from Proto-Indo-European *derə- (to tear, tear apart). Compare Italian tirare, Catalan, Portuguese, and Spanish tirar. If derived from the Germanic word, cognate with Gothic 𐌳𐌹𐍃𐍄𐌰𐌹𐍂𐌰𐌽 (distairan, to tear apart), Gothic 𐌲𐌰𐍄𐌰𐌹𐍂𐌰𐌽 (gatairan, to tear down, remove), German zerren (to tug). Related to tear. Alternatively from a reduction of Old French martirier, from Late Latin *martyrāre.
