The verb is from Middle English mannen, from Old English mannian, ġemannian ‎(to man, supply with men, populate, garrison), from mann ‎(human being, man). Cognate with Dutch mannen ‎(to man), German bemannen ‎(to man), Swedish bemanna ‎(to man), Icelandic manna ‎(to supply with men, man).

Usage notesEdit

  • The use of “man” to mean both “human (of any gender)” and “adult male”, which developed after Old English’s distinct term for the latter (wer) fell out of use, has been criticized since at least the second half of the twentieth century.[1] The use of “man”, both alone and in compounds, to denote a human or any gender “is now often regarded as sexist or at best old-fashioned”,[1] “flatly discriminatory in that it slights or ignores the membership of women in the human race”.[2] The American Heritage Dictionary wrote that in 2004 75-79% of their usage panel still accepted sentences with generic man, and 86-87% accepted sentences with man-made.[3] Some style guides recommend against generic “man”,[4] and “although some editors and writers reject or disregard [...] objections to man as a generic, many now choose instead to use” human, human being or person instead.[2]

GermanEdit

PronunciationEdit

Etymology 1Edit

From Middle High German man, from Old High German man, from Proto-Germanic *mann- ‎(man), probably ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *man-. Originally the same word as Mann ‎(man), which see for more. The same construct in Dutch men, French on.

PronounEdit

man

  1. one; you; they; people (indefinite pronoun; construed as a third-person singular)
    Man kann nicht immer kriegen, was man will.
    You can’t always get what you want.
    Manchmal muss man Kompromisse machen.
    Sometimes one must compromise.

    • 2008, Frank Behmeta, Wenn ich die Augen öffne, page 55:
      Kann man es fühlen, wenn man schwanger ist?
      Can one feel that one is pregnant?
Usage notesEdit
  • Man is used in the nominative case only; for the oblique cases forms of the pronoun einer are used. For example: Man kann nicht immer tun, was einen glücklich macht. (“One cannot always do what makes one happy.”)
  • Since man derives from the same source as Mann ‎(man; male), its use is considered problematic by some feminists. They have proposed alternating man and the feminine neologism frau, or using the generic neologism mensch. This usage has gained some currency in feminist and left-wing publications, but remains rare otherwise.

Etymology 2Edit

From Middle Low German. A contraction of Old Saxon newan ‎(none other than). Compare a similar contraction in Dutch maar ‎(only).
