Etymology

From Middle English day, from Old English dæġ (day), from Proto-West Germanic *dag, from Proto-Germanic *dagaz (day), from Proto-Indo-European *dʰogʷʰ-o-s, from *dʰegʷʰ- (to burn).

Cognate with Saterland Frisian Dai (day), West Frisian dei (day), Dutch dag (day), German Low German Dag (day), Alemannic German Däi (day), German Tag (day), Swedish, Norwegian and Danish dag (day), Icelandic dagur (day).
