Origin of Thus

  • From Middle English thus, thous, thos, from Old English þus (“thus, in this way, as follows, in this manner, to this extent"), from Proto-Germanic *þus (“so, thus"), perhaps originally from a variant of the instrumental form of this, related to Old English þȳs (“by this, with this"), Old Saxon thius (“by this, with this"). Cognate with Scots thus (“thus"), North Frisian aldoz (“thus"), West Frisian dus (“thus"), Dutch dus (“thus, so"), Low German sus (“thus, hence").
