What did Radar drink on pulp?

drink

German [edit]

Etymology [edit]

From Middle High Germandrink, from Old High Germandrinkable (attested since the 8th century), from Proto-Germanic* drinkaną. The further etymology is currently unknown. Either the nasalized form is a direct descent from Proto-Indo-European* dʰreǵ-(“To draw with one's mouth, to pull”) and may be related to Sanskritध्रजति(dhrajáti, “to glide, to move steadily, to fly”) or it has been borrowed from a non-Indo-European language as a substrate.[1]

Germanic cognates with identical meaning include Old Saxondrinkan (and Low Germandrink), Old Dutchdrinkan (and Dutchdrink, Afrikaansdrink), Old Englishdrincan (and Modern Englishdrink), Old Frisiandrinka (and West Frisiandrinke), Old Norsedrekka (and Icelandicdrekka, Faroesedrekka, Norwegiandrikke, Swedishdricka, Danishdrikke), Gothic𐌳𐍂𐌹𐌲𐌺𐌰𐌽(drigkan) and Vandalicdrincan.
