Proto-Indo-European[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Possibly of Indo-Uralic origin — compare the Uralic root *wete, whence Finnish vesi and Hungarian víz — but the suggestion that Indo-European and Uralic are related is controversial. Kronasser proposed in 1966 that there was an original root noun *wed-, the source of both the r/n-heteroclitic, and the Anatolian *wid(a)- (water). Starke and Kloekhorst argue that the latter is of Luwian origin, from the adjective [script?] (wida-, wet) (from PIE *wed-o-). Compare also Old Armenian գետ (get), an o-stem from Proto-Indo-European *wed-os-.

Noun[edit]

*wódr̥ n

  1. water

Declension[edit]
