Proto-Germanic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Of unclear origin. Many regard the forms without the medial *-t- or *-d-* as the older ones because the Slavic and Lithuanian loans do not show the reflex of a medial obstruent, which makes it difficult to connect with *pandan- ‎(pledge) (from Latin pondus ‎(weight)). Possibly a loanword from one of these Latin words:

  • panna ‎(pan), with a semantic shift explained as a penny being a "coin with a concave form" (De Vries/De Tollenaere), or
  • pannus ‎(piece of cloth), because cloth was often used as means of payment

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈpɑn.niŋ.ɡɑz/

Noun[edit]

*panningaz, *pandingaz, *pantingaz m

  1. a coin, penny
