French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle French amarer (14th c.), from Middle Dutch *aenmâren, from aen (on) + mâren (to moor, dock, fasten a ship), a variant of mêren, from Proto-West Germanic *mairōn, whence English moor. Alternatively to being from *aenmâren, Middle French amarer could also be a native derivation from the borrowed simplex marer, but compare Modern Dutch aanmeren.
