Interestingly, Swedish göra, Icelandic gera, Danish gøre and Norwegian gjøre all derive from Old Norse gǫra.
And while Old English had its own 'gearwian', modern 'yare' ('to prepare or make ready', rather than 'to do' ), and Middle English borrowed a duplicate (garen > gar, to compel or cause), it is ironic that the Scandinavian languages ended up changing their sound from G > Y exactly like English anyway.
Now only Icelandic gera and English gar (from Old Norse) retain the hard sound.
