来自PIE*dhegwh, 燃烧，发光，词源同fever, yester.引申义天亮，白天。
- day: [OE] Day and its Germanic relatives (German tag, Dutch, Danish, and Swedish dag, and Gothic dags) come from a prehistoric Germanic *dagaz. It seems likely that the ultimate source of this was the Indo-European base *dhegh-, which also produced Sanskrit dah- ‘burn’ and nidāgha- ‘heat, summer’, and that the underlying etymological meaning of day is thus ‘time when the sun is hot’.
- day (n.)
- Old English dæg "day," also "lifetime," from Proto-Germanic *dagaz "day" (cognates: Old Saxon, Middle Dutch, Dutch dag, Old Frisian dei, Old High German tag, German Tag, Old Norse dagr, Gothic dags), according to Watkins, from PIE *agh- (2) "a day" considered as a span of time. He adds that the Germanic initial d- is "of obscure origin."
Not considered to be related to Latin dies (see diurnal), but rather to Sanskrit dah "to burn," Lithuanian dagas "hot season," Old Prussian dagis "summer." Meaning originally, in English, "the daylight hours;" expanded to mean "the 24-hour period" in late Anglo-Saxon times. The day formerly began at sunset, hence Old English Wodnesniht was what we would call "Tuesday night." Names of the weekdays were not regularly capitalized in English until 17c. Day off first recorded 1883; day-tripper first recorded 1897. The days in nowadays, etc. is a relic of the Old English and Middle English use of the adverbial genitive.
