English - Etymology

Origin uncertain. * The OED suggests an unattested Old English form *_drūnian_ . Harper 2001 points to Old English _druncnian_, "probably influenced" by Old Norse _drukkna_ (cf. Danish _drukne_) . Funk & Wagnall's has Middle English drounen, drūnen, 'of uncertain origin'. It has been theorised (see e.g. ODS) that it may represent a direct loan of Old Norse _drukkna_, but this is described by the OED as being "on phonetic and other grounds [...] highly improbable" .

Origin uncertain.
