Etymology[edit]

From Middle English free, fre, freo, from Old English frēo (free), from Proto-Germanic *frijaz (beloved, not in bondage), from Proto-Indo-European *preyH- (dear, beloved, to be fond of). Related to friend. Cognate with West Frisian frij (free), Dutch vrij (free), Low German free (free), German frei (free) and Friede (peace), Danish and Norwegian fri (free).

Germanic and Celtic are the only Indo-European language branches in which the PIE word with the meaning of "dear, beloved" acquired the additional meaning of "free" in the sense of "not in bondage". This was an extension of the idea of "characteristic of those who are dear and beloved", in other words friends and tribe members (in contrast to unfree inhabitants from other tribes and prisoners of war, many of which were among the slaves – compare the Latin use of liberi to mean both "free persons" and "children of a family").[1][2]

The verb comes from Middle English freen, freoȝen, from Old English frēon, frēoġan (to free; make free).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /fɹiː/
  • (file)
  • (file)
  • Rhymes: -iː
A sign advertising free beer (obtainable without payment)
A "buy one get one free" sign at a flower stand (obtainable without additional payment)
This food product is labelled "fat free", meaning it contains no fat
