Vista

Etymology[edit]

There are two theories on the origin of this word. One derives it from Proto-Baltic *wiš- (with an extra element -tā), from Proto-Indo-European *wik-, the zero grade form of *wéyḱs (house, settlement). The original meaning would then have been “(relating to) the house, the settlement", from which "domestic (animal)” and finally “chicken.” The other theory relates it to Avestan [script?] (vīš, bird), possibly from a Proto-Indo-European stem *weys-. Cognates include Lithuanian vištà.[1]
