Word Origin & History

him
O.E. him, originally dative masc. and neut. of he; beginning 10c. it replaced hine as masc. accusative, a regional process completed by 15c. The dative roots of the -m ending are retained in Ger. (ihm) and Du. (hem). Hine persists, barely, as the southern England dialectal 'un, 'n for "him."
