English - Etymology 1

From _worth_ or _wurth_, from Old English _weorþ_, from Proto-Germanic _*werþaz_ (“towards, opposite”) (the noun developing from the adjective). Cognate with Dutch _waard_ (“adjective”), Low German _weert_ (“adjective”), German _wert_/_Wert_, Swedish _värd_. PREPOSITION WORTH * Having a value of; proper to be exchanged for. _My house now is WORTH double what I paid for it._ _Cleanliness is the virtue MOST WORTH having but one._ * Deserving of. _I think you’ll find my proposal WORTH your attention._ * (obsolete, except in Scots) Valuable, worth while. * Making a fair equivalent of, repaying or compensating. _This job is hardly WORTH the effort._ USAGE NOTES The modern adjectival senses of _worth_ compare two noun phrases, prompting some sources to classify the word as a preposition. Most, however, list it an adjective, some with notes like "governing a noun with prepositional force." Fowler's Modern English Usage says, "the adjective _worth_ requires what is most easily described as an object." Joan Maling (1983) shows that _worth_ is best analysed as a preposition rather than an adjective. CGEL (2002) analyzes it as an adjective.
