EtymologyEdit

From Old Lithuanian , from Proto-Balto-Slavic *eˀź-um, *eś; compare Latvian es, Old Prussian es/as, Sudovian es, Proto-Slavic *(j)azъ. From Proto-Indo-European h₁eǵ-, *h₁eǵHom (I). Compare Sanskrit अहम् (aham), Ancient Greek ἐγώ (egṓ), Old Armenian ես (es), Latin egō. The final *-ś in Baltic is perhaps a result of sandhi or final obstruent devoicing.

Notable parallels of the vowel change observed in Lithuanian > include:

These forms were perhaps carried on from dialects where *e- regularly gives a-.[1]
