English - Etymology

From Old English _rād_ (“riding, hostile incursion”), from Proto-Germanic _*raidō_ (“a ride, road”), from Proto-Indo-European _*reidh-_ (“to ride”). Cognate to _raid_, a doublet acquired from Scots, and West Frisian _reed_ (paved trail/road, driveway). The current primary meaning "street, way for travelling" is late—Shakespeare seemed to expect his audiences to find it unfamiliar—and probably arose through reinterpetation of _roadway_ as an tautological compound.
