Faroese[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Danish ønske, ynske, from the verb ønske, ynske from Old Norse œskja, from Proto-Germanic *wunskijaną. Forms without -n- are attested in Old Danish yske (verb) and usk (noun) (< Old Norse ósk), and -n- seems to have been reintroduced into these words under the influence of Middle Low German (compare German Low German wönschen (wish, verb), Plautdietsch Wensch (wish, noun)).

Noun[edit]

ynski n (genitive singular ynskis, plural ynski or ynskir)

  1. wish, request, desire
