词源1(Etymology 1)

From Middle English reden, from Old English rǣdan (to counsel, advise, consult; interpret, read), from Proto-Germanic *rēdaną (advise, counsel), from Proto-Indo-European *Hreh₁dʰ- (to arrange). Cognate with Scots rede, red (to advise, counsel, decipher, read), Saterland Frisian räide (to advise, counsel), West Frisian riede (to advise, counsel), Dutch raden (to advise; guess, counsel, rede), German raten (to advise; guess), Danish råde (to advise), Swedish råda (to advise, counsel). The development from ‘advise, interpret’ to ‘interpret letters, read’ is unique to English among Germanic languages. Compare rede.
