Serbo-CroatianEdit

Etymology 1Edit

From Proto-Slavic *somъ.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

sȍm m (Cyrillic spelling со̏м)

  1. catfish

DeclensionEdit

Etymology 2Edit

The origins of this term are unclear. Possibly because som (catfish) is a big fish. Others believe it is due to the 1000 Dinar banknotes of 1955, on which the person depicted appears to have two fish eyes (instead of a welding goggles) on his head. A 10 Dinara note (or 100 Dinara, this may vary regioanlly) is said to be called a "banka".

In the Soviet Union, speakers of Kazakh, Kyrgyz and Uzbek called the ruble the som, and this name appeared written on the back of banknotes, among the texts for the value of the bill in all 15 official languages of the Union. The word som (sometimes transliterated "sum" or "soum") means "pure" in Kyrgyz, Uyghur and Uzbek, as well as in many other Turkic languages. The word implies "pure gold".

NounEdit

sȍm m (Cyrillic spelling со̏м)

  1. grand (A thousand of some unit of currency)
    1. dva soma - 2000 Dinara or 2000 German Marks

SwedishEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old Swedish som or sum, in Runic inscriptions also sim, same as Icelandic sem, from Old Norse sem, from Proto-Indo-European *sḗm (one), also related to the prefix sam- (co-, common, together) and suffix -sam (-some, -like). Still in the Poetic Edda, the Icelandic sem is only used as a comparative particle, e.g. Hávamál 23 allt er víl sem var (And his woe is just as it was). With time it has displaced other relative conjunctions (es, er). Its use as a pronoun is of a later date.
