To accrue is to accumulate or to keep growing in value or size. If you can accrue enough extra credit to build up your grade, you won’t have to take the final exam.

You can accrue debt too, as interest grows on top of money owed until you pay it back. It’s possible to accrue benefits over the time you work somewhere, or you can accrue demerits while you’re misbehaving somewhere.

accrue (v.)formerly also accrew, mid-15c., acreuen, in reference to property, etc., “to fall to someone as an addition or increment,” from Old French acreue “growth, increase, what has grown,” fem. of acreu, past participle of acreistre (Modern French accroître) “to increase,” from Latin accrescere “grow progressively, increase, become greater,” from ad “to” (see ad-) + crescere “grow” (from PIE root *ker- (2) “to grow”). Related: Accrued; accruing.Apparently an English verb from a French noun because there is no English noun to go with it until much later (the earliest seems to be now-obsolete accrue, 1570s), unless the record is defective. From late 15c. as “happen or result as a natural growth;” from 1881 as “gain by increment, accumulate.” Alternative verb accrete “grow by adhesion” (1784) is rare, as is accresce (1630s), from Latin accrescere.Related entries & more
