English → English (gcide) Definition: Ywis Ywis \Y*wis"\, adv. [OE. ywis, iwis, AS. gewis certain; akin to D. gewis, G. gewiss, and E. wit to know. See Wit to know, and Y-.] Certainly; most likely; truly; probably. [Obs. or Archaic] [1913 Webster] “Ywis,” quod he, “it is full dear, I say.” --Chaucer.

[1913 Webster] A right good knight, and true of word ywis. --Spenser. [1913 Webster] Note: The common form iwis was often written with the prefix apart from the rest of the word and capitalized, as, I wis, I wisse, etc. The prefix was mistaken for the pronoun, I and wis, wisse, for a form of the verb wit to know. See Wis, and cf. Wit, to know. [1913 Webster] Our ship, I wis, Shall be of another form than this. --Longfellow. [1913 Webster]
