Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Slavic *domъ, from Proto-Indo-European *dṓm, from root Proto-Indo-European *dem- (to build). Indo-European cognates include Ancient Greek δόμος (dómos), Latin domus, Sanskrit दम (dáma), and Old Armenian տուն (tun) all with the basic meaning of "house". A cognate from the same Proto-Indo-European root is Old English timber (building, act of building); see modern English timber.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

дом (domm inan (genitive до́ма, nominative plural дома́ or до́мы*, genitive plural домо́в)

  1. house (building)
    обы́скивать дом за до́мом
    obýskivatʹ dom za dómom
    to search house by house
  2. home
  3. family
  4. household

Usage notes[edit]

  • The nominative-accusative plural до́мы (dómy), largely unused now, was in earlier Russian (as late as 19th century) sometimes restricted to the accusative case and distinguished from a nominative plural дома́ (domá). Compare the nominative plural домовє (domove), accusative plural домꙑ (domy) of Old Church Slavonic домъ (domŭ).
