English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle English hate (noun), probably from Old English hatian (to hate, verb) and or Old Norse hatr (hate, noun). Merged with Middle English hete, hæte, heate (hate), from Old English hete, from Proto-Germanic *hataz (hatred, hate), from Proto-Indo-European *keh₂d- (strong emotion). Cognate with West Frisian haat, Dutch haat, German Hass, Norwegian and Swedish hat.

The verb is from Middle English haten, from Old English hatian (to hate, treat as an enemy), from Proto-Germanic *hatōną (to hate), from Proto-Germanic *hataz, from the same root as above. Cognate with Dutch haten, German hassen, Swedish hata, French haïr (a Germanic borrowing).
