Origin & History of “web”

A web is etymologically something ‘woven’. In common with Dutch web, Swedish väf, and Danish vœv, the word goes back to a prehistoric Germanic *wabjam. this was derived from the base *wab-, *web-, which also produced English weave ‘make cloth’. The derivative webster (OE) originally denoted a ‘female weaver’, but it now survives only as a surname.
