French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle French resver, from Old French resver (to consider, reflect, be delirious), of uncertain origin. The Trésor de la langue française informatisé links it back either to an unattested *esver (to wander) or to Latin *reexvadō, from re- +‎ ex- +‎ evadō[1]. The Französisches Etymologisches Wörterbuch links it back to *reexvagus, hence the same as the second proposal by the Trésor de la langue française informatisé[2].
