From Old Norse vaxa, from Proto-Germanic *wahsijaną, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂weg-, cognate with wax (of the moon).

PronunciationEdit

  • (file)

VerbEdit

växa (present växer, preterite växte, supine växt, vuxit, imperative väx)

  1. grow; increase in size
  2. grow; sprout

Usage notesEdit

  • Similar to English grew/growed, there are traces of a strong conjugation (växa, --, vuxit) besides the more common weak one (växa, växte, växt). The strong singular past tense (originally vox) is never seen, but there is an obsolete plural past tense vuxo and a subjunctive vuxe.
