from The Century Dictionary.
- Of or belonging to the dative case: as, datival terminations.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
At the same time this extended form occurs with final -e and -es, after datival and genitival words like on-buten, on-eanes.
In 'he struck him a blow', we do not feel the first object to be datival, as we would in 'he gave him a blow'.
