Sala
Sala

There are different opinions on the origin of this word. Some derive it from Proto-Baltic *sel-, *sal-, from Proto-Indo-European *sel-, a variant of *ser- (to flow); in this case, the original meaning would have been “stream, river,” from which “body of water”(cf. Lithuanian sálti, Ancient Greek ἕlos (hélos, swamp) (< *selos), Sanskrit सरः (sáraḥ, lake, pond), perhaps also Latin insula < *in-sal-, and several river names: Salaca, Salica > Selke in Germany, Salate), then “something inside (a body of water),” “island.” Others derive sala from *ap(i)sala, from a verb meaning “to flow” (cf. Russian остров (óstrov, island), from Proto-Slavic *o-strovь, so that the original meaning would be “that which is surrounded by flowing (water)”). Others still consider sala to come from Proto-Indo-European *swel- (to swell), with as original meaning “(river) silt, deposits, sediments.” Cognates include Lithuanian salà; comparable Baltic-Finnic terms (Livonian sala (island), Estonian salu (swamp island), Finnish salo (forest island; forest)) are considered as borrowings from Baltic.[1]
