- arrange:  Arrange is a French formation: Old French arangier was a compound verb formed from the prefix a- and the verb rangier ‘set in a row’ (related to English range and rank). In English its first, and for a long time its only meaning was ‘array in a line of battle’. Shakespeare does not use it, and it does not occur in the 1611 translation of the Bible. It is not until the 18th century that it becomes at all common, in the current sense ‘put in order’, and it has been speculated that this is a reborrowing from modern French arranger.
