Danish[edit]

Noun[edit]

heden c

  1. singular definite of hede

Dutch[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Dutch heden, also hude, huden, from Old Dutch hiudo. A contraction of the instrumental phrase *hiu dago (this day), from Proto-Germanic *hiz (from which also hij) and *dagaz (from which dag). The appearance of the vowel -e- is unusual, the expected form in modern Dutch would be *huide(n), compare huidig.

Cognate with Old Saxon hiudu, hūdigu, German heute, West Frisian hjoed, Old English hēodæg.
