Origin of With

  • From Middle English with, from Old English wiþ (“against, opposite, toward"), a shortened form of wiþer, from Proto-Germanic *wiþr- (“against"), from Proto-Indo-European *wi-tero- (“more apart"); from Proto-Indo-European *wi (“separation"). Cognate with German wider (“against") and wieder (“again"), Dutch weer (“again"), Danish ved (“by, near, with"), Swedish vid (“by, next to, with"). In Middle English, the word shifted to denote association rather than opposition, displacing Middle English mid (“with"), from Old English mid (“with"), which is cognate to Old-Frisian mith (“with"), Modern Frisian mei (“with"), Dutch met (“with") and German mit (“with").
