Etymology of whether

Posted by Johannes on 8 March 2009

Etymology of whether

Whether derives from the Greek opoter-os [which one of the two; fem: -a, neut: -on; οπότερος] from poter-os [po- (who) + eteros (the other, the one of two)].
Το whether προέρχεται από το ελληνικό οπότερος από το πότερος (ποιός από τους δύο, όποιος από τους δυό; πο + έτερος).
