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.
