Etymology[edit]

From Old Danish werdhen, originally singular definite form of wæræld, wærild, wærælde, from Old Norse verǫld, from Proto-Germanic *weraldiz, cognate with Swedish värld, English world, German Welt, Dutch wereld. The original indefinite form in Old Danish was rarely used, to the extent that the definite form eventually replaced the indefinite form.

Etymology 1[edit]

From Danish verden, from Old Danish werdhen, originally singular definite form of wæræld, wærild, wærælde, from Old Norse verǫld, whence verd, from Proto-Germanic *weraldiz. The original indefenite form was rarely used so much so the definite form was interpreted as the indefinite form, hence the etymology.
