Icelandic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Norse þǫkk, from Proto-Germanic *þankō, *þankaz. Cognates include Icelandic takk, Faroese tøkk, Norwegian takk, Danish tak, Swedish tack, English thank, West Frisian tank, Dutch dank and German Dank.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

þökk f (genitive singular þakkar, nominative plural þakkir)

  1. a thank, thanks; an expression of gratitude.

Usage notes[edit]

  • The term þökk is used as a noun, and rarely as an interjection by itself. The derived term þökk fyrir can be used as an interjection.
  • The interjection takk (thank you) and its derivations are more common. Takk is borrowed from Danish tak, itself inhereted from Old Norse þǫkk, and is thus a cognate of þökk.
