Origin of offer
From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
- From Middle English offren, offrien, from Old English offrian (“to offer, sacrifice, bring an oblation"), from Latin offerō (“to present, bestow, bring before", literally “to bring to"), from Latin ob + ferō (“bring, carry"), from Proto-Indo-European *bÊ°er-, *bÊ°rÄ“- (“to carry, bear"), later reinforced by Old French offrir (“to offer"). Cognate with Old Frisian offria (“to offer"), Old Dutch offrōn (“to offer"), German opfern (“to offer"), Old Norse offra (“to offer"). More at ob-, bear. Displaced Old English ābÄ“odan from ā- + bÄ“odan (“to command, decree, summon").
