Alternative formsEdit

  • sähs (westernmost Ripuarian)

EtymologyEdit

From Old High German sehs. The now marginal variant sês (sähs) is the native form at least in most of the language area, since Old High German -hs- regularly becomes [s] (see Lahs, Ohs, wahße). Compare also fönnef ‎(five) and sibbe ‎(seven), which are non-native forms, too.
