Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Baltic *āˀbōl, genitive *āˀbeles (from this paradigm, the two forms ābols (apple) and ābele (apple tree) were later differentiated), from Proto-Indo-European *h₂ébl̥, *h₂ebōl, a word which some consider a borrowing from some pre-Indo-European language. Cognates include Lithuanian obuolỹs, Proto-Slavic *ablъko (Old Church Slavonic аблъко (ablŭko), Russian яблоко (jábloko)), Proto-Celtic *abalom (Old Irish uball, Irish úll, Scottish Gaelic ubhal), Proto-Germanic *aplaz (English apple, German Apfel, Dutch appel, Swedish äpple).[1]
