German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

First attested in the 15th century in Central German ōse, Middle Low German ōse. Since the word is seemingly of northern origin, it may be derived via Old Saxon *ōsi, from Proto-Germanic *ansijō(loop, handle), from Proto-Indo-European *h₂ensehᵃ-(loop, hook, handle). Alternatively, it may be derived from the cognate of German Ohr(ear); compare Öhr(eye of the needle).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Öse f ‎(genitive Öse, plural Ösen)

  1. eye (fitting consisting of a loop of a solid material, suitable for receiving a hook)
