EtymologyEdit

From Template:Etyl Template:M, Template:M, Template:M, Template:M, from Template:Etyl Template:M Template:Gloss, from Template:Etyl Template:M, equivalent to Template:Compound. Cognate with Template:Etyl Template:M, Template:Etyl Template:M, Template:Etyl Template:M, Template:Etyl Template:M, Danish and Norwegian Template:M, Swedish Template:M, Template:Etyl Template:M.

Similar constructions are common in Romance languages, such as Italian Template:M, Spanish Template:M, French Template:M and Portuguese Template:M, each meaning “[may you have fared] well [in] coming [here]”. These do not derive from Classic Latin, where a similar construction is not found, and presumably are instead the result of a calque from Germanic to Proto-Romance (Vulgar Latin).
