German

Pronunciation

Pronoun

wir

  1. (personal) we.

Inflection

The genitive case unser is more and more rarely used in modern German.

  • The genitive case unser does not express ownership, so it must not be mixed up with the similar-looking possessive pronoun unser, which is declined by gender, singular/plural and case.

Old English

Etymology

From Germanic: cognate with Middle Low German wīre, and related to Old Norse víra ‘filigree’, Old High German wiara.

Pronunciation

Noun

wīr m. (plural wīras)

  1. wire

Descendants


Scots

Verb
