Inde (etiķete)

EtymologyEdit

A 20th-century neologism, introduced in the Scientific Terminology Dictionary (Riga, 1922) to replace a previous Germanism, ģifts. The word was coined by shortening the (old-fashioned, dialectal) word indeve (illness, disease; bad disposition; evil spirit; poison), which J. Endzelīns considered either an old Curonian term or a borrowing from Lithuanian (cf. Lithuanian dialectal indėvė (poison; evil, evil spirit)), perhaps formed from a prefix *in- (Latvian ie-) and the verb dot (to give) or dēt (to lay (eggs); orig. to put). The meaning evolution would be similar to that of German Gift: from “something given, put (in)” to “poison.” Another possibility, suggested by the “evil spirit” meaning of the Lithuanian cognate (also attested in older Latvian sources as a name for the devil), is that indeve might come from *in- (negative) + dievs, i.e. “no-god” > “evil, evil spirit” (cf. similarly formed nedievs). It is also possible that two similar words, meaning “disease” and “evil spirit,” became homophonous and merged as indeve. It has also been suggested that Middle Dutch inde (end; death), inden (to end life, to die) could also have influenced indeve, given the strong presence of Dutch sailors and craftsmen in the times of the old Duchy of Courland (1561-1726).[1]
