Swedish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

This is not the prefix för-, but the two words för visso (for sure) run together. Visso is an antiquated form and hardly appears on its own. It is related to visserligen ‎(surely, granted) and German wissen ‎(to know).

Adverb[edit]

förvisso

  1. for sure, no doubt
