betray vs shop what difference

what is difference between betray and shop

English

Etymology

From Middle English betrayen, betraien, equivalent to be- +‎ tray (to betray). English tray (to betray) derives from Middle English traien, from Old French traïr (to commit treason, betray), from Latin trādō (to deliver, give over). Compare also traitor, treason, tradition. In English betrayen meant solely to commit an act of treason against someone; deliver someone treasonably to an enemy; betray one’s trust; deceive, mislead. The modern sense to disclose, discover, reveal unintentionally is due to influence from or merger with English bewray (to reveal, divulge), which is similar in sound and meaning. The similarity with German betrügen, Dutch bedriegen, from Proto-West Germanic *bidreugan (to betray, deceive), is coincidental.
