- where: [OE] Where is an ancient Indo-European formation derived from the interrogative base *qwo- (source also of English what, who, etc). In Germanic (where its relatives include Dutch waar, Swedish var, Danish hvor, and the war- of German warum ‘why’) it has largely become limited in its application to ‘place’, but in other branches of the Indo-European language family it performs other interrogative functions: Latin cūr ‘why’, for instance, Welsh pyr ‘why’, and Sanskrit kárhi- ‘when’, beside Lithuanian kur ‘where’.
