English - Etymology

From Early Modern English _brethren_ (plural of brother), from Middle English _brethere_, _brether_ + _-en_ (plural ending), alteration, due to Old English _brēþer_ (dative singular), of Old English _brōþor_, _brōþru_ (“brothers, brethren”). Compare German _Brüder_ (“brothers, brethren”). More at brother. The vowel change from _o_ to _e_ is called umlaut.
