Elfdalian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Attested in 1622 as taste, of uncertain origin:

  • Contraction of Old Norse þar (when) + relative pronoun es + conjunction at (that) > *tarst > tast. Old Norse þar corresponds to modern dar, and cf. the form dest attested elsewhere in Ovansiljan, where the cognate to dar is der.
  • Contraction of elements corresponding to Old Norse þá (then) + relative pronoun es, with a final -t perhaps from an enclitic Old Norse at (that) or til (> te), or perhaps secondary, as in welest (cognate to Old Swedish vælis).
