Proto-Germanic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Pre-Germanic *h₂elnós, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂el- ‎(all). See *ala- for the form without the nasal suffix.[1] Cognate with Old Irish uile and probably Old Armenian ողջ ‎(ołǰ).

Pronunciation[edit]

Determiner[edit]

*allaz

  1. all

Declension[edit]

In compound words, the stem *ala- was apparently used instead of the regular *alla-. This might be evidence of an older heteroclitic or perhaps n-stem paradigm, in which *aln- became *all-.
