English - Etymology

From Middle English, from Old English _þing_ (thing), from Proto-Germanic _*þingą_; compare West Frisian _ding_, Low German _Ding_, Dutch _ding_, German _Ding_, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian _ting_. The word originally meant "assembly", then came to mean a specific issue discussed at such an assembly, and ultimately came to mean most broadly "an object". Compare the Latin _rēs_, also meaning _legal matter_. Modern use to refer to a Germanic assembly is likely influenced by cognates (from the same Proto-Germanic root) like Old Norse _þing_ (thing), Swedish _ting_, and Old High German _ding_ with this meaning.
