Proto-SlavicEdit

EtymologyEdit

Of disputed origin. Commonly, the Slavic term is compared with Latin taxus (yew) and Ancient Greek τόξον (tóxon, bow), both of which are speculated to be borrowed from Scythian (cf Persian تخش(taxš, crossbow)). This etymology, however, fails to explain Slavic *-i-.

NounEdit

*tìsъ m[1][2]
