hemo (plural hemi)

Latin[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *dʰǵʰm̥mō (earthling). Cognates include Old Lithuanian žmuõ (man) and Gothic 𐌲𐌿𐌼𐌰 (guma).

Compare also nēmō (no one), from *ne hemō. Proto-Indo-European *dʰǵʰm̥mon- (or *dhĝhm̥ó according to Mallory and Adams) is a derivative of *dʰéǵʰōm (earth), whence also Latin humus. Thus, same Proto-Indo-European root gave both the nouns for man and earth; compare similar semasiological development in Semitic languages: Hebrew אָדָם (adam, man, soil).
