Proto-Germanic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Often explained as derived from the Proto-Indo-European root *dʰegʷʰ- ‎(to burn), but the loss of the labialization would be irregular; *dawaz would be expected. Kroonen posits instead a root *dʰeǵʰ-, but does not give any meaning or cognates outside Germanic.[1]

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

*dagaz m

  1. day
  2. (Runic alphabet) name of the D-rune ()
