Etymologies

from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 4th Edition

[Middle English perusen, to use up : Latin per-, per- + Middle English usen, to use; see use.]

From per-+use, from either Medieval Latin (peruti, perusitare ("wear out")) or Anglo-Norman (peruser ("use up")), originally leading two concurrent meanings, but only those derived from "to examine" survive today.
