Etymology 1[edit]

Inherited from Old East Slavic прочь (pročĭ, away). Cognate with Old East Slavic проче (proče, except), Ukrainian пріч (prič, away), проча́нин (pročányn, pilgrim), Belarusian проч (proč, away), Old Church Slavonic прочь (pročĭ, rest, remaining), проче (proče, therefore), Bulgarian про́чее (próčee, therefore), Slovene pròč (away) (tonal orthography), Polish oprócz (except); also, less clearly, with Czech pryč (away, out), Slovak preč (away), Polish precz (away), Upper Sorbian preč (away), Lower Sorbian pšec (away) (also pšejc). Per Vasmer, apparently an original comparative of Proto-Slavic *prokъ (whence Russian прок (prok)), originally an adjective meaning "ahead". See Russian про́чий (próčij) and прок (prok) for more information.
