Proto-Germanic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *pōl-, *phōl-, *spōl-. A more recent theory would see the reconstruction of Pre-Germanic *h₂ph₃elh₁né- or *h₂ph₃olh₁né-, from a proposed univerbation of *h₂po (off, away) + *h₃elh₁- (to fall); which would allow connection with Latin aboleo (to destroy) and Ancient Greek ἀπόλλυμι (apóllumi, to destroy, kill).[1]

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈɸɑl.lɑ.nɑ̃/

Verb[edit]

*fallaną

  1. to fall
