1. wend one's home
2. wend one's way
- wend: [OE] Wend comes from the prehistoric Germanic base *wand-, *wend- ‘turn’, which also produced German and Dutch wenden, Swedish vända, and Danish vende ‘turn’ (and English wand and wander). It started off meaning ‘turn’ in English too, but it soon broadened out to ‘go’, and from the end of the 15th century its past form went has been used as the past tense of go.
=> wand, wander, wind
- wend (v.)
- "to proceed on," Old English wendan "to turn, direct, go; convert, translate," from Proto-Germanic *wanjan (cognates: Old Saxon wendian, Old Norse venda, Swedish vända, Old Frisian wenda, Dutch wenden, German wenden, Gothic wandjan "to turn"), causative of PIE *wendh- "to turn, wind, weave" (see wind (v.1)). Surviving only in to wend one's way, and in hijacked past tense form went. Originally weak; strong past participle is from c. 1200.
- Wend (n.)
- member of a Slavic people of eastern Germany, 1610s (implied in Wendish), from German Wende, from Old High German Winida, related to Old English Winedas "Wends," of uncertain origin. Perhaps ultimately from Celtic *vindo- "white," or from PIE *wen-eto- "beloved," from *wen- (1) "to desire." Related: Wendish.
