Tocharian B[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Tocharian *āñc(ä)me (whence also Tocharian A āñcäm), probably from a form of Proto-Indo-European *h₂en(h₁)tmen-, from *h₂enh₁- (breathe), the same source as anāsk- (to breathe), onolme (creature, person), and añiye (breath). Cognate with Sanskrit आत्मन् (ātman, breath), Old High German ātum (breath)) and, from the nominal derivative *h₂enh₁mos, Latin animus (mind, soul), anima, Ancient Greek ἄνεμος (ánemos, wind, breeze), Old Armenian անձն (anjn, person), and possibly Sanskrit अनिल (anila, air, wind)).
