Origin of cair

  • From Middle English cairen, kayren, from Old Norse keyra (“to whip, lash, fling, toss, prick on, drive”), from Proto-Germanic *kaurijaną, variant of Proto-Germanic *karjaną (“to turn, sweep”), from Proto-Indo-European *gei- (“to turn, bend”). Cognate with Icelandic keyra (“to run, drive, urge”), Swedish köra (“to drive, go, run”), Danish kjøre (“to drive”), Old English ċierran (“to turn, change, go, come”). More at char.
