FinnishEdit

(index nu)

EtymologyEdit

Karelian nuo, Estonian noo (southern dialect), Mordvinic nona, Mari nuno. Related to Northern Sami nuvt (about). Possible cognates in Samoyedic but relations are indistinguishable from relations to other n-pronouns.

Alternative formsEdit

  • IPA(key): /ˈnuo̯/
  • Hyphenation: nuo
  • Rhymes: -uo

PronounEdit

nuo (stem noi-) (semantic plural of tuo)

  1. (demonstrative) those

DeclensionEdit

  • Case suffixes are regular and the stem is invariant. The comitative is quite infrequently used, but the abessive forms are practically never used. The instructive plural is used but rather as an adverb.

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *nō; compare Latvian nùo (from), Old Prussian no, na (onto, against, over), Proto-Slavic *n nkl a (on, to). In East Baltic the meaning somehow switched from lp"movement onto" to "movement away". Often connected with Ancient Greek ἀνά (aná, up, along) ἄνω (ánō, upwards) Avestan 𐬀𐬥𐬀 (ana), Old Persian 𐎠𐎴𐎠 (anā, upwards, along) < Proto-Indo-European *h₂en- (up, on high). A similar Balto-Slavic loss of initial *a can be seen in (under, after).
