Luxembourgish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old High German havēn, northern variant of habēn, from Proto-Germanic *habjaną. The modern vocalism (-u-, -ue-) implies that the shortening into a monosyllable, common throughout western High German, must have occurred rather late in Luxembourgish. (The shift -a--ue- requires an open syllable.)

The expected imperative would be *huef. The form hief is perhaps influenced by hief, imperative of hiewen (to lift), or by sief, imperative sinn (to be), though this latter form is itself unclear.
