IcelandicEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old Norse nǫ́tt, nótt, nátt, from Proto-Germanic *nahts, from Proto-Indo-European *nókʷts. Cognate with Latin nox.

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /nouʰt/
  • (file)
  • Rhymes: -ouht

NounEdit

nótt f (genitive singular nætur, nominative plural nætur)

  1. night
    Ég vakti fram á nótt
    I woke up at night.

DeclensionEdit

The original stem is nátt- (<*naht-), preserved in the genitive plural (although the forms nótta, nóttanna now also exist) and in all stem compounds (e.g. nátthrafn). The -ó- comes from earlier -ǫ́-, created by u-mutation of -á-, a vowel change that is no longer productive.
