Etymology edit

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *mer-, *mir-. Compare Latvian mirt (die), Old Church Slavonic мрѣти, мьрѫ (mrěti, mĭrǫ, die), Russian умереть, умру (umeretʹ, umru, die). The Baltic forms are from the zero-grade of Proto-Indo-European *mer-, *mr̥- (to die).

The -sta present was introduced at the Balto-Slavic stage (compare Latvian mirsta); the -š- is due to the RUKI law. The acute past/present root is analogous with gim̃ti, gìmsta, gìmė, although is of unclear motivation.
