Etymology

O.E. sendan "send, send forth, throw," from P.Gmc. *sandijanan (cf. O.S. sendian, O.N., O.Fris. senda, M.L.G., M.Du. senden, Goth. sandjan), causative form of base *sinþan, denoting "go, journey" (source of O.E. sið "way, journey," O.N. sinn, Goth. sinþs "going, walk, time"), from PIE base *sent- "to head for, go" (cf. Lith. siusti "send;" see sense). Also used in O.E. of divine ordinance (cf. godsend, from O.E. sand "messenger, message," from P.Gmc. *sandaz "that which is sent"). Slang sense of "to transport with emotion, delight" is recorded from 1932, in Amer.Eng. jazz slang. Send-off "farewell" (especially a funeral) is from 1872.
