Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *h₃ebʰi.

Preposition[edit]

*o(b)

  1. (with locative) around, about
  2. (with locative) concerning
  3. (with accusative) against, on

Usage notes[edit]

Because of the law of open syllables, the final -b was often dropped. It was retained when the next word began with a vowel or with l or r. When combined with a word that began with v, it was also retained, but the v was dropped.
