Proto-Slavic edit

Etymology edit

From earlier *dъbno, from Proto-Balto-Slavic *dúbna, from Proto-Indo-European *dʰubʰnóm. Cognate with Lithuanian dùgnas (bottom) (< *dùbnas) and akin to Old Prussian padaubis (dale).

Per Trubačev, perhaps grammaticized from the oblique form of an earlier r/n-stem, whose direct reflex had yielded Proto-Slavic *dъbrь.

Noun edit

*dъnò n[1][2][3]

  1. bottom, base

Alternative forms edit

  • *bъno < earlier *bъdno (attested in Sorbian)
