Word Origin & History

fry
late 13c., from O.Fr. frire, from L. frigere "to roast or fry," from PIE *bhreu- (cf. Skt. bhrjjati "roasts, bharjanah "roasting;" Pers. birishtan "to roast;" Gk. phrygein "to roast, bake"). Meaning "execute in the electric chair" is U.S. slang from 1929. To go out of the frying pan into the fire is
first attested in Thomas More (1532). Related: Fried; frying.

fry
"young fish," 1293, from Anglo-Fr. frei, from O.Fr. frai "spawn," from froier "to rub, spawn (by rubbing abdomen on sand)." First applied to human offspring 14c. in Scot., though OED traces this usage to O.N. frjo, fræ "seed, offspring."
