Alternative formsEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Middle High German hier, from Old High German hier, from Proto-Germanic *hē₂r. Cognate with Dutch hier, English here, Swedish här. The predominant form in Middle High German and throughout modern dialects of High German is hie (and variants) with loss of the final -r. The form hier begins to gain ground from the late 16th century (in spite of Luther’s usage), which may point to influence by cognate Middle Low German hīr, hēr (where no r-less form seems to exist; but compare modern Limburgish heej).
