MORNING , properly the
See also:dawn of
See also:day, sunrise, but extended to the whole early
See also:part of the day, from the dawn to midday . " Morning " (M . Eng. morwening) was formed on the
See also:analogy of " evening," from " morn," in M . Eng. morwen, and originally meant the coming of the sunrise, as " evening," the coming of the close of the day (O . Eng. cefnung, from mien,
See also:eve) . The O . Eng.
See also:morgen represents the
See also:common Teutonic word for the dawn; the ultimate source has been assigned to the
See also:root, seen in " murk," " murky," meaning to be dark, or, with more probability, to the root mergh, to twinkle, shine (cf . Lith. mirga), and further to the root
See also:mar, as in Gr. yapzatpew, to shine (cf .
See also:Lat. marmor, marble) . The M . Eng. morwen dropped then and became morwe, " morrow," which properly means " morning," but was soon used of the day following the
See also:present . The " morning-
See also:star " (Ger .
Morgenstern) was a military weapon of the
See also:middle ages, consisting of a mace or
See also:club with a
See also:head studded with spikes; the spiked ball was sometimes swung loose from the head of the mace by a chain . The weapon was also known as a "
See also:water sprinkler." The "morning-
See also:gift," earlier " moryeve," Ger . Morgengabe, was the present given to a
See also:bride by her
See also:husband on the morning after the
See also:marriage . The
See also:custom is probably connected with the origin of the
See also:term " morganatic marriage " (see MORGANATIC) .
