LithuanianEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *mes; compare Latvian mẽs, Old Prussian mes, Old Church Slavonic мꙑ (my); akin to Old Armenian մեք (mekʿ). This form in m replaced Proto-Indo-European *wéy (we), probably after the 1st person plural verbal suffix -me. At the East-Baltic stage, the oblique forms were rebuilt by analogy with jūs. Compare the Old Prussian oblique forms nūsan, nūmans, and Old Church Slavonic насъ, намъ (nasŭ, namŭ), from *n̥s-, nos-.
