EtymologyEdit

From Middle High German zan, zant, from Old High German zan, zand, from Proto-Germanic *tanþs, from Proto-Indo-European *h₃dónts. For the phonetic development compare Hand. The fact that Zand has been used in Kölsch and adjacent dialects is remarkable, because these must have adopted the form from the south rather than from standard German.

Usage notesEdit

  • The plural Zänn is used in Moselle Franconian and some southern dialects of Ripuarian. The form Zäng is used in many Ripuarian dialects, including Kölsch.
