EtymologyEdit

Since Fick (1890), considered a native word of Proto-Indo-European origin, cognate with the Sanskrit पिनाक (pínāka, staff, stick) and the Proto-Slavic *pь̑njь (whence the Old Church Slavonic пьнь (pĭnĭ), the Russian пень (penʹ, trunk, stub)). On the other hand, Beekes prefers a Pre-Greek origin.
