EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from Old Saxon thiudisc, from Proto-West Germanic *þiudisk, from Proto-Germanic *þiudiskaz (of or relating to a people), cognate with German deutsch, Dutch Duits, and English Dutch.

The Old Icelandic form þýðverskr is remodelled from þýzkr after the old suffix for ethnonyms -verr (from Proto-Germanic *warjaz), compare also Icelandic Þjóðverji (a German). The adjective is derived form the noun Proto-Germanic *þeudō (people, nation), whence Old Norse þjóð and Danish tjod. Originally, the adjective was not an ethnonym, but designated the vernacular language in opposition to Latin. This is the meaning of Theodiscus in eigth-century Latin texts.
