EtymologyEdit

Probably related to шу̑м (noise, buzz). According to P. Skok[1], the term may alternatively be of paleo-Balkan origin (Illyrian or Thracian). He draws connection with Albanian proshem (wood). However the native origin is confirmed by the onomatopoeic origin of Proto-Slavic *gajь (forest), so at most it is a phono-semantic matching of substrate.
