Usage notesEdit

  • The interjection takk (thanks) (borrowed from Danish tak, from Old Norse þǫkk) is a cognate of þökk (a thank, thanks), itself inhereted directly from Old Norse.
  • The term þökk is used as a noun, and rarely as an interjection by itself. The derived term þökk fyrir can be used as an interjection.
