EtymologyEdit

From Old Norse því, possibly from the instrumental interrogative Proto-Germanic *hwī (how, with what), with the initial h- replaced by the þ- from the forms of *sa. The modern Westrobothnian form with d- instead of t- (see tykken) probably evolved thus: við þvívið ðví → modern ve ‿ dy/di "with that".
