Origin of load
- Middle English lode alteration (influenced by laden to load) of lade course, way from Old English lād leit- in Indo-European roots
From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
- From Middle English lode, loade, from Old English lād (“course, journey; way, street, waterway; leading, carrying; maintenance, support"), from Proto-Germanic *laidō (“leading, way"), from Proto-Indo-European *leit- (“to go, go forth, die"), from Proto-Indo-European *lei- (“to be slimy, be sticky, slide, glide, stroke"). Etymologically identical with lode, which preserved the older meaning. Cognate with Middle Low German leide (“entourage, escort"), German Leite (“line, course, load"), Swedish led (“way, trail, line"), Icelandic leið (“way, course, route"). The sense of "˜burden' developed in the 13th century.
- The verb load "˜to charge with a load' is derived from the noun, in the 16th century, and was influenced by the etymologically unrelated lade, which it largely supplanted.
