Definitions and meaning of drag
(UK) IPA(key): /dɹæɡ/
From Middle Englishdraggen(“to drag”), early Middle Englishdragen(“to draw, carry”), confluence of Old Englishdragan(“to drag, draw, draw oneself, go, protract”) and Old Norsedraga(“to draw, attract”); both from Proto-Germanic*draganą(“to draw, drag”), from Proto-Indo-European*dʰreǵʰ-(“to draw, drag”). Verb sense influenced due to association with the noun drag(“that which is hauled or dragged”), related to Low Germandragge(“a drag-anchor, grapnel”). Cognate with Danishdrægge(“to dredge”), Danishdrage(“to draw, attract”), Swedishdragga(“to drag, drag anchor, sweep”), Swedishdraga(“to draw, go”), Icelandicdraga(“to drag, pull”). Doublet of draw.
