Afrikaans[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Dutch teen. The vocalism -oo- seems not present in any Dutch dialects and its origin is therefore unknown. Possibilities include: 1.) influence by English toe; 2.) hypercorrection by speakers of southern Dutch dialects, in which -oo- is often fronted to -eu-, which may further touch on -ee- via unrounding; compare Dutch zoon ‎(son) with Afrikaans seun (often pronounced [sɪə̯n]).
