Definitions and meaning of mir

mir

Etymology

Borrowing from Russian мир (mir, world).

Noun

mir (plural mirs)

  1. A Russian village community.
    • 1878, Donald Mackenzie Wallace, Russia (volumes 1-3, page 179)
      [T]he constitution of the village [] was a subject which specially interested me, because I was aware that the Mir is the most peculiar of Russian institutions.
    • R. Van Bergen, The Story of Russia, page 190:
      The mir was the only means to prevent this, and mir meant serfdom under another name. The landowners disposed of their land, or of so much as was required to support the peasants, not to individuals but to the mir.

Derived terms

  • mirs (it to me) (contraction of mir es)

Etymology 2

From Middle High German mir (we). The form originated through assimilation of wir with a preceding verb form and subsequent unetymological segmentation. This is possibly already an Old High German development, since a common Old High German ending of the 1st person plural was -em, thus bittēm wir*bittē-mir (modern bitten wir (ask we, do we ask)). The contraction as such is definitely old, though the common form of assimilation, both in written Old High German and written Middle High German, is through loss of the nasal: bittē wir. The form with mir may either be a younger development in Middle High German, or a more colloquial form that only later appeared in writing. Older age is suggested by the great dominance of mir throughout modern dialects of High German. Compare Yiddish מיר(mir), Luxembourgish mir. Compare also Old Norse mit (we two), Norwegian Nynorsk me (we).

Pronoun

mir

  1. (regional, dialectal or colloquial) Alternative form of wir (we)
    • 16th century / 1874, Alsfelder Passionsspiel mit Wörterbuch herausgegeben von C. W. M. Grein, p. 13 l. 458f. [note: the text also has mer for 1st person plural nominative]:
      Mir willen widder in die helle,
      Die armen sele siden und quellen.
Usage notes
  • The form is not common in those parts of northern Germany where Low German dialects have traditionally been spoken.
