Proto-Germanic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *h₁sóntih₂ ~ h₁sn̥tyéh₂-, the feminine form of *h₁sónts (being, true), itself the present participle of *h₁és- (to be), from which the present tense forms of Germanic *wesaną also descend. The sense would have originally implied a verdict of "truly guilty" against an accusation or charge.

Noun[edit]

*sundijō f

  1. something that should not be; sin, crime
