Proto-Slavic edit

Etymology edit

Inherited from Proto-Balto-Slavic *wišas, from Proto-Indo-European *wi-so-s, from *wi (separated, divided; two parts of a whole). Cognate with Lithuanian visas, Latvian viss, Old Prussian wissa f sg (all), Proto-Indo-Iranian *wíćwas.

Reconstruction notes edit

Old Novgorodian въхе (vŭxe) (attested with spelling вохь (voxĭ), and in other forms like вхоу f (vxu, accusative), въхо n (vŭxo), въхъ m (vŭxŭ, accusative)) shows no sign of the progressive palatalization, continuing early Proto-Slavic *vĭxas, later *vŭxə.[1]
