Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Italic *tendō, from Proto-Indo-European *tend-, extension of Proto-Indo-European *ten- (to stretch, draw). Sihler traces the /d/ back to the ordinary present suffix -ye in position after *n (cf. offendō, dēfendō from *gʷʰen-ye-). Cognates include Ancient Greek τείνω (teínō), Sanskrit तनोति (tanóti) and Old English þennan.
