Phrygian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *dʰǵʰemelo-, whence also Ancient Greek χθαμαλός ‎(khthamalós, near the ground) and Latin humilis ‎(low). Same Proto-Indo-European root gave both the nouns for "man" and "earth" (Proto-Indo-European *dʰéǵʰōm); compare Latin homō ‎(human being, man) and humus ‎(ground, soil), and similar semantic shift occurring in Semitic languages: Hebrew אָדָם ‎(adám, man), אדמה ‎(adamá, soil).

Noun[edit]

ζεμελως ‎(zemelōs) ‎(dative plural)
