Serbo-Croatian[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

Probably related to шу̑м (noise, buzz). A parallel may then be drawn to the onomatopoeic origin of Proto-Slavic *gajь (forest).

Otherwise, according to P. Skok,[1] the term may alternatively be of paleo-Balkan origin (Illyrian or Thracian); he draws connection with Albanian proshëm (wood).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ʃûma/
  • Hyphenation: šu‧ma
