SloveneEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Slavic *oko, from Proto-Indo-European *h₃ekʷ-.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

okọ̑ n

  1. eye
  2. sprout on a potato

InflectionEdit

This noun has two plural forms, which are used in different situations:

  • When talking about the eyes in anatomical sense, the 2nd plural is used (for example: "My eyes hurt." - "Oči me bolijo."; or "The spiders have eight eyes." - "Pajki imajo osem oči.").
  • In other cases, where the word "oko" means other things (for example: "oko" meaning "a sprout on a potato"; or "kurje oko" meaning "a callus"), the normal plural is used.
  • The dual is used when referring specifically to both eyes (for example: "He lost both eyes in the war." - "V vojni je izgubil obe očesi.").

Tocharian BEdit

EtymologyEdit

May be a derivative ultimately of Proto-Indo-European *h₂ewg- (increase, grow); one theory suggests it was a borrowing from the Tocharian A oko, with the same meaning, but it was more likely that it was taken from B into A instead, as is more often the case. Alternatively, another plausible etymology may be Proto-Indo-European *h₂ógeh₂ (berry, fruit) (compare Lithuanian úoga, Latvian oga, Russian я́года (jágoda), Old English æcern (English acorn)).

  1. fruit
