Gothic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Germanic *watōr, the stem of which alternated between ending in -r and -n. Note that the stem in Gothic has undergone some changes, losing the final -r in the nominative and accusative singular (presumably to resemble the inflection of neuter an-stem nouns more closely). The contracted plurals, however, are preserved. Unlike most Germanic languages (with the exception of North Germanic; cf. Old Norse vatn), Gothic also preserves the alternate -n stem for the oblique cases. Other Germanic languages typically leveled the paradigms of this word to be based entirely on the -r stem (for example, Old English wæter, genitive wæteres).
