Lithuanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *in, *en-; compare Old Prussian en ‎(in, into), Proto-Slavic *vъ(n) ‎(in, into). From Proto-Indo-European *h₁én, *h₁n̥; compare Ancient Greek ἐν ‎(en), Latin in, Proto-Germanic *in. The discrepancy between the u-vocalism seen in Slavic and the i-vocalism in Baltic is unclear, but both forms can be derived from the zero-grade. Latvian ìe- displays a full-grade and is confined to nominal compounds. Compare Lithuanian príe- / pri-, núo- / nu- and / pa-.

Pronunciation[edit]

į ‎(with accusative)

  1. to, into, toward (in the direction of, and arriving at)
