Summary:<p>In his thesis "Wringen — Dweran — Torquere. Etymologische Untersuchungen", Münster 1961 LOTHAR SCHMIDT decides for a single gmc. etymon for NHG ringen 'to fight' and wringen 'to wring'. The three OHG examples for firing are interpreted as scribal errors. WALTHER MITZKA proves in the present essay that GRAFF'S view, that the two stems have arisen from different etymons, which has been generally accepted since, is still basically justified and that OHG hring is to be taken at face value.</p>
