Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Usually explained as a compound of Proto-Indo-European *h₁su- (well, good) (whence also Sanskrit सु (, good, well), Ancient Greek εὖ (, well)) and Proto-Indo-European *dóru (tree, wood).

However, the lack of Winter's law on the first member of the compound (cf. the apparent cognate compound in Lithuanian sū́drus (thick, dense) where Winter's law did operate) has lead Meillet to connect *sъdòrvъ to Sanskrit ध्रुव (dhruvá, firm, solid) and Avestan 𐬛𐬭𐬎𐬎𐬀 (druua-). The original form would thus be *sъ̀dorvъ with ictus shifted by Dybo's law.
