Etymology[edit]

From Middle English five, vif, fif, from Old English fīf (five), from Proto-West Germanic *fimf (five), from Proto-Germanic *fimf (five) (compare West Frisian fiif, Dutch vijf, German fünf, Norwegian and Swedish fem, Icelandic fimm), from Proto-Indo-European *pénkʷe (compare Welsh pump, Latin quinque, Tocharian A päñ, Tocharian B piś, Lithuanian penki, Russian пять (pjatʹ), Albanian pesë, pêsë, Ancient Greek πέντε (pénte), Armenian հինգ (hing), Persian پنج(panj), Sanskrit पञ्च (páñca)). Doublet of cinque, punch, pimp, and Pompeii.

The nasal *m in Proto-Germanic *fimf was lost through a sound change known as the Ingvaeonic nasal spirant law.

Etymology[edit]

From Old English fīf, from Proto-West Germanic *fimf, from Proto-Germanic *fimf, from Proto-Indo-European *pénkʷe.

Though Old English fīf was usually indeclinable, inflected forms of it are far from unknown. Forms with final -v- originate from intervocalic voicing in these inflected forms.
