Etymology[edit]

EB1911 - Volume 01 - Page 001 - 1.svg This reconstruction page lacks etymological information. If you are familiar with the origin of this term, please add it to the page per etymology instructions. You can also discuss it at the Etymology scriptorium.
Particularly: “See scriptorium entry for more info. TLDR:
  • Grimm's + epenthetic U before sonorant rule would end up with a form tulg-, which does exist
  • No ablaut to be found in *dl̥h₁gʰós, which without ablaut would fail to produce *langaz and Latin longus which would derive from O-grades
  • Assuming an N-infix without a single verb to back it up”

Pronunciation[edit]

Adjective[edit]

*langaz (comparative *langizô, superlative *langistaz)
