Proto-SlavicEdit

EtymologyEdit

Formed as *bujь +‎ *-ěti (or *-ati) from the eh₁-fientive *bʰowH-yeh₁-ti (or respectively the eh₂-causative *bʰowH-eh₂yé-ti), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *bʰewH- (to inflate, to grow). The secondary meaning related to rampaging and aggressiveness may have been partially influenced by the onomatopoeic *bew- (to howl, to blow).

VerbEdit

*bujati impf (perfective *buniti)

  1. to grow rapidly, to thrive
  2. to rage
