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.
