Origin of reckon

From Middle English rekenen, from Old English recenian (“to pay; arrange, dispose, reckon") and Ä¡erecenian (“to explain, recount, relate"); both from Proto-Germanic *rekanōnÄ… (“to count, explain"), from Proto-Germanic *rekanaz (“swift, ready, prompt"), from Proto-Indo-European *h₃roǵéye- (“to straighten, direct"). Cognate with Scots rekkin (“to ennumerate, mention, narrate, rehearse, count, calculate, compute"), West Frisian rekkenje (“to account, tally, calculate, figure"), Dutch rekenen (“to count, calculate, reckon"), Low German rekenen (“to reckon"), German rechnen (“to count, reckon, calculate"), Swedish räkna (“to count, calculate, reckon"), Icelandic reikna (“to figure"). See also reck, reach.
