EtymologyEdit

A borrowing from Old East Slavic умъ (umŭ, mind, intellect) (cf. Russian ум (um, mind, intellect, wit)), cognate with Lithuanian aumuõ (understanding, notion, intellect), genitive aumeñs. This word was borrowed into Latvian before the 13th century, while Old East Slavic у was still close to [o] in pronunciation. It conserved its original meaning (“mind,” “understanding”) well into the 19th century; the modern sense was an innovation introduced by A. Kronvalds.[1]
