Etymology

edit

Inherited from Old Catalan hom, from the nominative case of Latin homō (man). Its pronominal use is of Germanic origin. Compare Old English man (one, they, people), reduced form of Old English mann (man, person); French on; German man (one, they, people); Dutch men (one, they, people).

Doublet of home (man), from Old Catalan (h)ome(n), that continues the accusative case form hominem. There are very few Latin nouns that have been inherited in more than one case form, others include drac/dragó and res/re.

Etymology

From Middle Dutch homme, identical to homme (mold), of uncertain origin, but probably related to Old Norse húm (dusky, twilight), from Proto-Germanic *skim- (to shine-), which has been compared to Proto-Indo-European *(s)kewH- (to cover),[1] but according to the Etymologisch Woordenboek this is extremely unlikely.[2]
