EtymologyEdit

From hōc +‎ diē (ablative masculine singular), meaning "on this day". Compare German heute (today), German Low German hüüt (today), West Frisian hjoed (today), Old English hēodæġ (today, adverb), which are semantically the same construction, but with etymologically unrelated roots, hence not cognate.
