- fare: [OE] Both the verb fare (now only an archaism) and the noun go back ultimately to the Indo-European base *por- ‘going, passage’, which has produced a wide range of other English words, including emporium, ferry, fiord, ford, importune, opportunity, pore, and port. Its Germanic descendant was *fer- ‘go’, which produced in Old English the nouns fær and faru ‘journey’ and the verb faran ‘go on a journey’ (its German cousin fahren is still a standard verb for ‘travel’).
Of the noun’s current senses, ‘food’ (which seems to have originated in the notion of ‘how well one was faring’, ‘how one was provided for’) dates back to the 13th century, and ‘money paid for travelling’ to the 15th century. The derivative welfare dates from the 14th century.

- fare (n.)
- Old English fær "journey, road, passage, expedition," from strong neuter of faran "to journey" (see fare (v.)); merged with faru "journey, expedition, companions, baggage," strong fem. of faran. Original sense is obsolete, except in compounds (wayfarer, sea-faring, etc.) Meaning "food provided" is c. 1200 (Old English also had the word in the sense "means of subsistence"); that of "conveyance" appears in Scottish early 15c. and led to sense of "payment for passage" (1510s). Meaning "person conveyed in a vehicle" is from 1560s.
- fare (v.)
- Old English faran "to journey, set forth, go, travel, wander, make one's way," also "be, happen, exist; be in a particular condition," from Proto-Germanic *faran "to go" (cognates: Old Saxon, Old High German, Gothic faran, Old Norse and Old Frisian fara, Dutch varen, German fahren), from PIE *por- "going, passage," from root *per- (2) "to lead, pass over" (see port (n.1)). Related: Fared; faring.
