Aka

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Baltic *ak- (with an extra ), from Proto-Indo-European *okʷ-, from *h₃okʷ-, *h₃ekʷ- “eye”, whence also Latvian acs “eye”, (q.v.); in fact, aka is, historically speaking, a variant of acs. The semantic relation goes clearly via the similarity of a hole (from which one obtains water) to an eye. Initially probably used for “ice-hole” (like its Lithuanian cognate), and later “well.” Cognates (in addition to those listed under acs include Lithuanian akà, ãkas (ice-hole), Old Church Slavonic око (oko, eye) (gen. очесе (očese)), Russian poetic око (óko), Bulgarian око (okó), Czech, Polish oko, Ancient Greek ὀπή (opḗ, hole, opening, cave; visiion).[1]
