Definition till

Etymology 1

From Middle English til, from Northern Old English til, from or akin to Old Norse til (“to, till”); both from Proto-Germanic *til (“to, toward”), from Proto-Germanic *tilą (“planned point in time”). Not a shortening of until; rather, until comes from till with the prefix un- (“against; toward; up to”) also found in unto. Cognate with Old Frisian til (“to, till”), Danish til (“to”), Swedish till (“to, till”), Icelandic til (“to, till”). Also related to Old English til (“good”), German Ziel (“goal”), Gothic ??? (til, “something fitting or suitable”).



  1. Until; to, up to; as late as (a given time).
  2. (Can we verify this sense?) (obsolete) To, up to (physically).
  3. (dialectal) To make it possible that.


  1. Until, until the time that.

Etymology 2

From Middle English tylle (“till”), potentially from Middle English tillen (“to draw”) from Old English *tyllan (as in betyllan (“to lure, decoy”) and fortyllan (“to draw away”); related to tollian). Cognate with Albanian ndjell (“I lure, attract”).

Alternatively, Middle English tylle is from Anglo-Norman tylle (“compartment”) from Old French tille (“compartment, shelter on a ship”) from Old Norse þilja (“plank”).
