Definitions and meaning of rend

rend

Etymology

From Middle English renden, from Old English rendan (to rend, tear, cut, lacerate, cut down), from Proto-Germanic *hrandijaną (to tear), of uncertain origin. Believed by some to be the causative of Proto-Germanic *hrindaną (to push), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱret-, *kret- (to hit, beat), which would make it related to Old English hrindan (to thrust, push). Cognate with Scots rent (to rend, tear), Old Frisian renda (to tear).
