来自古英语 thider,向那里，来自 Proto-Germanic*thadra,向那里，来自 PIE*to,指示代词，PIE*tra,
- thither (adv.)
- Old English þider "to or toward that place," altered (by influence of its opposite hider) from earlier þæder "to that place," from Proto-Germanic *thadra- (cognates: Old Norse þaðra "there," Gothic þaþro "thence"), from PIE pronominal root *to- (see that) + PIE suffix denoting motion toward (compare Gothic -dre, Sanskrit -tra). The medial -th- developed early 14c. but was rare before early 16c. (compare gather, murder, burden).
- 1. Refugees run hither and thither in search of safety.
- 2. They have dragged themselves thither for shelter.
- 3. He wandered hither and thither looking for a playmate.
