Proto-SlavicEdit

EtymologyEdit

From *d(ъ)vigъ (branching, buttress serving as lever), from *d(ъ)va (2) +‎ *-igъ. Compare German Zweig (branch < branching), from Zwei (2).

The loss of -v- in South Slavic is secondary. For a similar phenomenon, compare Serbo-Croatian storiti (to do, to commit), Bulgarian сторя (storja, to do) < *sъtvoriti.

VerbEdit

*dvigati impf (perfective *dvignǫti)[1]

  1. to raise, lift, move up
