Preposition

{{osx-prep}} against, with, toward

Etymology 1

From Middle English with, from {{inh, en, ang, wiþ, t=against, opposite, toward, with}}, from {{inh, en, gem-pro, wiþ}}, a shortened form of {{der, en, gem-pro, *wiþra, t=against}}, from {{der, en, ine-pro, *wi-tero-, t=more apart}}, from {{der, en, ine-pro, *wi, t=separation}}. Cognate with {{cog, ofs, with, t=against, again, in exchange}}, {{cog, osx, with, t=against, again, toward, with}}, {{cog, da, ved, t=by, near, with}}, {{cog, sv, vid, t=by, next to, with}}, {{cog, ovd, wið, t=at, by, beside}}. Related to {{cog, ang, wiþer, t=against, in opposition to}}, {{cog, nl, weder, t=again}} and weer, t=again, opposite, {{cog, nds, wedder, t=again, against, opposite}}, {{cog, de, wider, t=against}} and wieder, t=again. In Middle English, the word shifted to denote association rather than opposition, displacing {{cog, enm, mid, t=with}}, from {{cog, ang, mid, t=with}}, from {{cog, gem-pro, *midi}}, cognate with Old-Frisian mith, t=with, Modern {{cog, fy, mei, t=with}}, {{cog, non, með, t=with}}, {{cog, is, með, t=with}}, {{cog, nl, met, t=with}}, and {{cog, de, mit, t=with}}.
