Origin of wrought

  • Middle English wroght from Old English geworht past participle of wyrcan to work werg- in Indo-European roots

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • The past participle of Middle English werken (“to work"), from Old English wyrcan (past tense worhte, past participle geworht), from Proto-Germanic *wurkijanÄ…, from Proto-Indo-European *werǵ- (“to work"). Cognate with wright (as in wheelwright etc.), Dutch gewrocht, archaic past participle of werken (archaic past tense wrocht, archaic past part. gewrocht).
