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.

Obs.

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

2. To bear, endure, or suffer.
