Phrasal Verbs

Etymology

"to pay out or away" (money or wealth), O.E. -spendan (in forspendan "use up"), from L. expendere "to weigh out money, pay down" (see expend). A general Gmc. borrowing (cf. O.H.G. spendon, Ger., M.Du. spenden, O.N. spenna). In ref. to labor, thoughts, time, etc., attested from c.1300. Spendthrift first recorded 1601, from thrift in sense of "savings, profits, wealth;" replaced earlier scattergood (1577) and spend-all (1553).
