Other Word Forms of It
Origin of It
From Middle English, from Old English hit, from Proto-Germanic *hit (“this, this one”), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱe-, *ḱey- (“this, here”). Cognate with West Frisian it (“it”), Low German it (“it”), Dutch het (“it”), German es (“it”). More at he.
A representation of the pronunciation of hit by a speaker whose dialect lacks the voiceless glottal fricative or transition (IPA: [h]). Not to be confused with hit, which is a dialectal variant of the pronoun it.
Middle English from Old English hit ko- in Indo-European roots
