Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Common Balto-Slavic; cognate with Latvian lūsis, Lithuanian lūšis and Old Prussian luysis. Further Indo-European cognates are Ancient Greek λύγξ (lúnks), German Luchs and Old English lox. Note the rhotacism of the initial consonant from "l" to "r" while the other Indo-European cognates did not undergo this change.

Noun[edit]

*rysь m

  1. lynx
