English - Etymology

Middle English _coveren_, from Old French _covrir, cueuvrir_ (Modern French _couvrir_) from Late Latin _coperire_ from Latin _cooperio_ (“I cover completely”), from _co-_, intensive prefix, + _operio_ (“I close, cover”). Displaced native Middle English _thecchen_ and _bethecchen_ (“to cover”) (from Old English _þeccan_, _beþeccan_ (“to cover”)), Middle English _helen, (over)helen, (for)helen_ (“to cover, conceal”) (from Old English _helan_ (“to conceal, cover, hide”)), Middle English _wrien, (be)wreon_ (“to cover”) (from Old English _(be)wrēon_ (“to cover”)), Middle English _hodren, hothren_ (“to cover up”) (from Low German _hudren_ (“to cover up”)). According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the original sense of the verb and noun _cover_ was _hide from view_ as in its cognate _covert_. Except in the limited sense of _cover again_, the word _recover_ is unrelated and is cognate with _recuperate_.
