vefsíða

IcelandicEdit

EtymologyEdit

From vefur (web) +‎ síða (page).

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

vefsíða f (genitive singular vefsíðu, nominative plural vefsíður)

  1. website
  2. (now less common) web page

Usage notesEdit

Vefsíða originally only referred to a web page, but due to influence from the English false friend website, the word adquired that meaning. The same development occurred in Danish where hjemmeside (literally home page) adquired the meaning of website.
