From Proto-Indo-European *prews- (to freeze, burn).

  This entry lacks etymological information. If you are familiar with the origin of this term, please add it to the page per etymology instructions, or discuss it at the Etymology scriptorium.
Particularly: “is the freeze/burn gloss in Proto-Indo-European *prews- (to freeze, burn) consistent with contemporary reconstructions? It is from Pokorny, is not normally cited elsewhere on Wiktionary, and has a sceptical gloss in the only Wiktionary non-Latin `burn' cognate, Sanskrit प्लोषति (ploṣati).”
