Proto-Germanic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *ḱómsōd (union, gathering), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱóm (beside, by, with, along). Cognate with Latin consilium ("council, advisory body"; < *consodium), Russian сосед (soséd, neighbour), Latin cum (with).

Alternative etymology suggests possible derivation from Proto-Indo-European *(s)ken-, *(s)kend- (to split off, secede). If so, then related to *skinþą.

Noun[edit]

*hansō f

  1. A gathering, summation, mass, quantity, amount
  2. A coalition, crowd, multitude, troop
