Origin & History of “raw”

Raw has relatives in German (roh), Dutch (rauw), Swedish (), and Danish (ra). these all go back to a prehistoric Germanic ancestor *khrawaz, whose ultimate source was Indo-European *krowos (other descendants of the same base include Greek kréas ‘flesh’, from which English gets creosote and pancreas, and Latin crūdus ‘raw’, source of English crude and cruel).
