Etymology 1[edit]

From Old High German dir.

Pronoun[edit]

dir

  1. second-person singular, dative: you; thee
    Ech hunn dir e Bréif geschéckt.
    I have sent you a letter.

Etymology 2[edit]

From Old High German ir. The d- is through unetymological segmentation of the ending -t of a preceding verb (*stitt ir*stiddirstitt dir). This development was assisted by a parallelism with the 1st person, in which the dative singular mir is also the nominative plural. (This latter is due to a similar reason, but is an earlier development widespread throughout High German.)

Pronoun[edit]

  1. second-person plural, nominative: you; you all; ye
    Hutt dir gutt geschlof?
