Etymology[edit]

From Middle English Tewesday, from Old English Tīwesdæġ (Tuesday), from Proto-Germanic *Tīwas dagaz (Tuesday, literally Tiw's Day), from *Tīwaz (Tyr, god of war) + *dagaz (day). This was a Germanic rendering of Latin dies Martis in interpretatio germanica, itself a translation of Ancient Greek [script needed] (Areos hemera) (interpretatio romana). Cognate with Scots Tysday (Tuesday), West Frisian tiisdei (Tuesday), German dialectal Ziestag (Tuesday), Danish tirsdag (Tuesday), Swedish tisdag (Tuesday). More at Tyr, day.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]
