Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
Old English forgietan "lose the power of recalling to the mind; fail to remember; neglect inadvertently," from for-, used here probably with privative force, "away, amiss, opposite" + gietan "to grasp" (see get). To "un-get," hence "to lose" from the mind. A common Germanic construction (compare Old Saxon fargetan, Old Frisian forjeta, Dutch vergeten, Old High German firgezzan, German vergessen "to forget"). The physical sense would be "to lose (one's) grip on," but that is not recorded in any historical Germanic language. Figurative sense of "lose care for" is from late 13c. Related: Forgetting; forgot; forgotten.
vb. 1 (context transitive English) To lose remembrance of. 2 (context transitive English) To unintentionally not do, neglect. 3 (context transitive English) To unintentionally leave something behind. 4 (context intransitive English) To cease remembering. 5 (context slang English) (non-gloss definition: euphemism for) fuck, screw (qualifier: a mild oath).
forget to do something; "Don't forget to call the chairman of the board to the meeting!" [ant: mind]
leave behind unintentionally; "I forgot my umbrella in the restaurant"; "I left my keys inside the car and locked the doors" [syn: leave]
