Proto-UgricEdit

EtymologyEdit

A borrowing from an Indo-European language, likely Old Iranian. Ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *septḿ̥. The lack of a regular vowel-correspondence between Hungarian hét (<<*ét) and Proto-Ob-Ugric *θääpet *[s̪æːpet] (as well as the irregular s- in Mansi) suggest that this word was borrowed separately into Proto-Hungarian and Proto-Ob-Ugric.[1]

NumeralEdit

  1. seven
