Etymology

O.E. wringan "press, strain, wring, twist" (class III strong verb; past tense wrang, pp. wrungen), from P.Gmc. *wrenganan (cf. O.E. wringen "to wring, press out," O.Fris. wringa, M.Du. wringhen, Du. wringen "to wring," O.H.G. ringan "to move to and fro, to twist," Ger. ringen "to wrestle"), from PIE *wrengh- "to turn," nasalized variant of *wergh- "to turn," from base *wer- "to turn, bend" (see versus). Wringer "device for squeezing water from clothes" first recorded 1799. Fig. phrase to put (something) through the wringer first recorded 1942, Amer.Eng.
