More cognates here. I add Lithuanian dievas. --Fsojic (talk) 16:47, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Are you sure that is not from *deywós? —CodeCat 16:48, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Not at all, I have wondered. I remove it until we are sure. --Fsojic (talk) 17:01, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
The same question should be asked about the Old Church Slavonic word. It looks like a direct descendant from *deywós, too. However, it seems to be attested with the meaning "demon" sometimes, and has often been suggested to be a borrowing from Iranian, thus only indirectly from the PIE protoform; in any way, the meaning "astonishment, wonder" that we give does not fit either etymology. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 20:13, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
