EtymologyEdit

From earlier *aineh, possibly an old loan of Germanic origin, compare e.g. Swedish ämne (matter, subject), from Proto-Germanic *abniz. This is however uncertain due to the exceptional correspondence of Germanic *b with Finnish i.[1] The only certain cognate is Karelian aineh; Estonian aine is borrowed from Finnish.
