The word lunging is a continuous tense of the verb lunge. The word lunge has its origin in Old French and is taken from the word alongier. Alongier means 'to lengthen'. The prefix 'a' means 'to' and longier means 'long'. Later, alongier was altered as allonger by the French. Then, allonger was adapted as allonge which means 'to thrust'. When someone passes or thrusts something suddenly (as with a sword), he is said to be lunging. The verb lunge could also be used lunged and is the past tense of lunge.

The verb lunge also means 'to move with an abrupt thrust'. This verb could also be used with an object. It means 'to cause to lunge'.
