Origin of refreshment

  • Recorded since 1665; either directly or via refreschement, from Old French refrescher (12th century; modern rafraîchir), itself from re- "again" + fresche "fresh" (Modern French frais; from a Germanic source, cognate with Old High German frisc, modern German frisch, Dutch fris etc.)
