Tocharian BEdit

EtymologyEdit

Ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *pṓds. Compare the nominative/accusative dual form, paine, presumably from Proto-Tocharian *peine du (whence also Tocharian A peṃ (nominative/accusative dual)), from an earlier *pei, from Proto-Indo-European *póde du, from *pṓds. It is from this dual form in Proto-Tocharian that the singular forms have probably been analogically built. Compare Tocharian A pe. [1]

NounEdit

paiyye m

  1. foot
