EtymologyModificar

Middle English delaien from Patrono:Xno[[Category:Patrono:Xno derivations|Delay]] delaier from Old French deslaier from des- + laier "to leave", of Patrono:Gem[[Category:Patrono:Gem derivations|Delay]] origin--a conflation of Patrono:Frk[[Category:Patrono:Frk derivations|Delay]] *latjan "to delay, hinder" (from Proto-Germanic *latjan (to delay, hinder, stall) from Proto-Indo-European *le(i)d- (to leave, leave behind)) and Patrono:Frk[[Category:Patrono:Frk derivations|Delay]] *laibjan (to leave) (from Proto-Germanic *laibijan-, laibián- (to leave, cause to stay) from Proto-Indo-European *leip- (to remain, continue)). Akin to Old English latian "to delay, hesitate" (from Old English latu "a delay, a hindrance"), Old English lǣfan "to leave". More at let, leave
