1. grope <===>gripe, grip.
- grip: [OE] Grip comes from a prehistoric Germanic verb *gripjan, derived from a base *grip-. Variants of this base produced gripe [OE] (which originally meant simply ‘grasp’), grope [OE], and possibly also grab. French borrowed it as gripper ‘seize’, from which English gets the now obsolete grippe ‘flu’ .
=> grab, gripe, grope
- grip (v.)
- Old English grippan "to grip, seize, obtain" (class I strong verb; past tense grap, past participle gripen), from West Germanic *gripjan (cognates: Old High German gripfen "to rob," Old English gripan "to seize;" see gripe (v.)).
