  1. ^ B. Richard Page, in Studies in Classical Linguistics in Honor of Philip Baldi (2010, ed. by Page and Aaron Rubin), pages 75-76: "Latin vinum 'wine' is one of the earliest loanwords in Germanic. It is attested throughout Germanic: Go. wein, ON vin vΓ­n, OE wΔ«n, OHG wΔ«n, OS wΔ«n. Jellinek (1926: 184-185) argues that the loan occurred no later than the first century CE since the Germanic forms reflect a phonetic glide for initial Latin (v). [...] Additional support is found in the orthographic treatment of Latin (v) in later Latin loanwords. Compare Go. wein with Go. naΓΊbaΓ­mbaΓ­r 'November' (Green 1998: 207). [...] Green (1998: 127-129) surveys extralinguistic evidence that indicates the Germani were acquainted with wine, and presumably the word vinum, by the first century BCE."
