горе

Bulgarian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From the fossilized locative or dative singular of Proto-Slavic *gorà (mountain, literally to/on the mountain); compare гора́ (gorá, mountain, archaic). Stress shift onto the stem is expected in the locative singular but not the dative singular. However, the parallelism with до́лу (dólu, down) (which is definitely derived from a dative singular) suggests that this term, too, may derive from the dative singular, with stress shift by analogy with до́лу (dólu).
