Dutch

Etymology

[edit]

From Middle Dutch mude, from Old Frisian and western Old Dutch *mūtha, an Ingvaeonic variant (with loss of the nasal before a dental consonant, plus concomitant compensatory lengthening of the preceding vowel) of Old Dutch munt, whence modern Dutch mond and -monde in place names like IJsselmonde). Both derive from Proto-Germanic *munþaz (mouth). Often encountered in the dative plural form muiden in toponyms, functioning as a dative of location.
