Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Middle High German tūte (thing shaped like a horn), tōte (jug with a spout), from Proto-Germanic *þeutǭ (pipe) with an irregular (onomatopoeic?) treatment of the initial consonant. Compare also Dutch tuit (spout), German Tüte (bag), and (a younger loan from Low German) Danish tut. The Germanic noun is derived from the verb *þeutaną, which shows the same development of the initial consonant in Middle Low German tūten (hence German tuten) and Dutch tuiten, toeten (hence English toot).

  • Similarly to French, German, and Spanish etc., Hungarian distinguishes two senses of ’to know’, being aware or certain of some information (this verb) and being acquainted or familiar with someone or something (see ismer). See also usage notes at the German verb kennen describing the same difference and translations of to know for related terms in other languages.
