LatinEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Italic *nowos, from Proto-Indo-European *néwos. Cognates include Ancient Greek νέος ‎(néos), Sanskrit नव ‎(náva) and Old English nīwe (English new).

Proto-Italic *nowos fails to become Latin *nuus due to specific conditions in the development of Latin, namely -o-(w)- being in the first syllable, whereas *dē nowōd "anew" > dēnuō.
