English - Etymology

From Middle English _screw_, _scrue_ (“screw”); apparently, despite the difference in meaning, from Old French _escroue_ (“nut, cylindrical socket, screwhole”), of uncertain origin. There is also the Old French _escruve_ (“screw”), from Old Dutch _*scrūva_ ("screw"; whence Middle Dutch _schruyve_ (“screw”)), which probably influenced or conflated with the aforementioned resulting in the Middle English word.
