Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

There is few theories of its orign:

  1. From *mesti (to throw, to drop). Early form is met-tos that means "something what is dropped, thrown over".
  2. From *mazd-to-s "aggregate of timbers or boards", where -to- is collective suffix.
  • Vasmer: German origin is unreliable, judging by diversity of meanings and derived forms in Slavic languages and peculiarities of accent. Slavic forms hardly derives from *mazd-to. Doubtfully erect to *mot-tos.
  • (Author?): Borrowed from a *mastaz. Compare English mast and German Mast.

Noun[edit]

*mostъ m

  1. bridge
