3. Etymology: the word worry now usually means "to be uneasy, to feel anxiety", but it came from a much more worrisome Old English verb, wyrgan, "to strangle, to choke", or "to tear at the throat with the teeth."
People still use the word in this original meaning when they talk about a cat worrying a mouse.
