Luxembourgish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Derived from the noun at hand in Otem (breath), under the influence of German atmen, from Old High German ātamōn. This influence is seen in the -t-, but also in the fact that the inherited verbs throughout Central Franconian have umlaut (ädeme, ödeme, compare Middle High German ætemen). Compare also Dutch ademen.

Pronunciation[edit]
