Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

According to Kapović, *ja derives from Proto-Indo-European *éǵ(h₂), while jazъ derives from *éǵHóm. Kortlandt, responding to Kapović, derives jàzъ from Proto-Balto-Slavic *ˀeˀźun, from Proto-Indo-European *ʔéǵHom, and rejects *ja as secondary. Olander similarly reconstructs only a single early Proto-Slavic form, *ˈēzu, to yield later *ja̋zъ, *já.
