Luxembourgish

Alternative forms

  • dinn (chiefly south-western dialects; remains common)
  • dunn (dated)

Etymology

From Old High German duon, a northern variety of tuon, from Proto-Germanic *dōną. The phonetically regular form is dunn. The form doen seems to be a backformation from the past participle by analogy with verbs such as droen, schloen.

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): /ˈdo.en/, [ˈdoː.ən]
    • Rhymes: -oːən

Verb

doen (third-person singular present deet, preterite doung, past participle gedoen, past subjunctive déit or déing, auxiliary verb hunn)

  1. to do
  2. to make, cause

Usage notes

  • The verb is overall rare and widely replaced with maachen (even in many cases where German would use tun rather than machen).
  • The preterite doung is obsolete in general Luxembourgish, whereas the subjunctive déit (déing) still sees some usage as an alternative auxiliary for the conditional tense: ech déit soen (“I would say”) instead of ech géif soen, ech géing soen.
