шу́ма (šúmam inan

  1. genitive singular of шум (šum)

Serbo-Croatian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Probably related to шу̑м (noise, buzz). According to P. Skok[1], the term may alternatively be of paleo-Balkan origin (Illyrian or Thracian). He draws connection with Albanian proshem (wood). However the native origin is confirmed by the onomatopoeic origin of Proto-Slavic *gajь (forest), so at most it is a phono-semantic matching of substrate.

  • IPA(key): /ʃûma/
  • Hyphenation: шу‧ма
