Danish

Etymology

From Old Norse til, from Proto-Germanic *tilą (goal), cognate with Swedish till (to), English till, German Ziel n (goal). The preposition has arisen from an adverbial use of the noun, lit. "(with) the goal of something". In Old Norse, the preposition governs the genitive, a usage which is preserved in certain fixed phrased in Danish.

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): /te(l)/, [tˢel], [tˢe]

Preposition

til

  1. to, towards (direction or goal of a physical movement)
  2. towards (the way a thing is turned)
  3. to, until (the upper limit)
  4. for (the purpose or the beneficiary)
  5. into, interested in (especially sexually)
  6. at (at a certain point in time, with certain nouns)
  7. by, by (not later than)
  8. (together) with (e.g. accompanying food)
  9. on, by (the mean of transportation)

Archaic case forms

  • The preposition governed the genitive in Old Norse and Old Danish. This usage is preserved in several fixed phrases (always with the noun in the indefinite singular):
  • In many phrases, the noun ends in -e, which is either 1) an old genitive plural (Old Norse -a), 2) an old genitive singular in a different declension (Old Norse -ar), or 3) an old dative singular (Old Norse -i), analogically after other case relict phrases:
