Origin & History of “way!”

In common with German and Dutch weg, Swedish väg, and Danish vej, way goes back to a prehistoric Germanic *wegaz. this was formed from the base *weg- ‘move, carry’ (source also of English waggon, wee, and weigh), which in turn was descended from Indo-European *wegh-. This also produced English vector, vehicle, etc, and a variant of it is responsible for English wag and wave of the sea.
