Proto-GermanicEdit

EtymologyEdit

The Gothic descendant 𐌰𐌶𐌲𐍉 (azgō) ascribed to this etymon leads Kroonen to suggest a derivation from a compound of Proto-Indo-European *h₂ed- (to dry) + *dʰegʷʰ- (to burn).[1]

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

*askǭ f[1]

  1. ash, ashes

InflectionEdit

Verner alternation was preserved in this noun, so that some forms had the stem *azg-; however, the distribution of the alternants is currently unknown.
