The English language-word window originates from the Old Norse &#039vindauga&#039, from &#039vindr &ndash wind&#039 and &#039auga &ndash eye&#039, i.e., wind eye. In Norwegian Nynorsk and Icelandic the Old Norse form has survived to this day (in Icelandic only as a less used synonym to gluggi), in Swedish the word vind&oumlga remains as a term for a hole through the roof of a hut, and in the Danish language &#039vindue&#039 and Norwegian Bokm&aringl &#039vindu&#039, the direct link to &#039eye&#039 is lost, just like for &#039window&#039. The Danish (but not the Bokm&aringl) word is pronounced fairly similarly to window.
