arise

\ \ [OE] Arise is a compound verb with cognate forms in many other Germanic languages (Gothic, for instance, had urreisan).
\ \ The prefix a- originally meant ‘away, out’, and hence was used as an intensive; rise comes from an unidentified Germanic source which some etymologists have connected with Latin rīvusstream’ (source of English rivulet), on the basis of the notion of a stream ‘rising’ from a particular source. The compound arise was in fact far commoner than the simple form rise in the Old English period, and it was only in early Middle English that rise began to take its place.
\ \ This happened first in northern dialects, and may have been precipitated by Old Norse rísa. Today, it is only in the sense ‘come into existence’ that arise is commoner.
\ \ Cf.RAISE, REAR, RISE, RIVULET
