That sounds about right.

I chose this one, another simple, obsolete word, because it derives from a cognate with a Gothic word that means "to perform military service". I thought that was interesting in light of this word's meaning.

adree, v.


1. To carry on, practise, pass (life, time, etc.). Only in OE.

2. To bear, endure, or suffer.
