LithuanianEdit

EtymologyEdit

From an older nesà or nėsà, which Ford interprets as ne- + *so; the latter element being from Proto-Indo-European *so (conjunctve particle);[1] compare Hittite 𒋗 (šu-, preterite conjunctive particle), Old Irish se (conjunctive particle), ultimately deriving most likely from the Proto-Indo-European demonstrative *só, *séh₂, *tód. See tas for more. The further parallel drawn by Ford with Hittite 𒈾𒀸𒋗 (naššu, or) is neither supported nor ruled out by Kloekhorst.[2]
