EtymologyEdit

Originally an e-stem variant of an earlier i/n-stem *astis, from Proto-Baltic *asti- < *aš-sti-. Further, two possible Proto-Indo-European sources have been proposed: (a) *aḱ-sti-, from *aḱ- “sharp, pointy, edgy; stone” (whence also ass “sharp”, q.v.), with the meaning changes being “sharp, pointy (object)” > “stinger” > “tail”; and (b) *ost(h)- < *Host(H)-, *h₃ésth₁- “bone,” in which case the semantic evolution would have been “bone” > “tail bone” > “tail” (cf. Icelandic rōfa “dog's, cat's tail” from Old Norse rófa “bony part of a horse's tail”). In the (a) case, cognates would include Lithuanian akstìs(skewer, fish bone) akštìs(skewer, fish bone, awn), Old Church Slavonic осътъ(osŭtŭ, thorny water plant), остъ(ostŭ, awn, stinger, fish bone), Russian ость(ostʹ), Czech osť, Polish ość, Russian осот(osót, thorny plant), Bulgarian осът(ósǎt), Czech, Polish oset. In the (b) case, cognates would include Hittite *ḫaštai, Sanskrit अस्थि(अस्थि), Ancient Greek ὀστέον(ostéon), Albanian asht, Tocharian B āsta, Latin os (and maybe also costa “rib”), and perhaps also all the (a) cognates, which some authors also derive from Proto-Indo-European *Host(H)-, *h₃ésth₁-.[1]
