Etymology[edit]

From Middle English, from Old English is, from Proto-Germanic *isti, a form of Template:Wt/sco/proto, from Template:Wt/sco/proto. Cognate with West Frisian is (is), Dutch is (is), German ist (is), Old Swedish is (is). The paradigm of "to be" has been since the time of Proto-Germanic a synthesis of four originally distinct verb stems. The infinitive form "to be" is from Template:Wt/sco/proto. The forms is and am are derived from Template:Wt/sco/proto whereas the form are comes from Template:Wt/sco/proto. Lastly, the past forms starting with "w-" such as was and were are from Template:Wt/sco/proto.
