Etymology edit

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *is; compare Proto-Slavic *jь (he, she, it) > Old Church Slavonic и (i), Czech jenž, jež (that, who). In the modern Slavic languages, these forms are reflected only in the oblique forms of *onъ; see for more. Ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *éy *h₁é (this one, he); compare Latin is (he), Gothic 𐌹𐍃 (is, he), Sanskrit अयम् (ayám, this one).
