Proto-Slavic[edit]

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *salHdus. Cognate with Lithuanian saldùs and Latvian salds.

Balto-Slavic word is derived from the Proto-Indo-European *sh₂el-d-u-, extended form of *sh₂el-, *seh₂l- (salt) (whence also *solь (salt)). The original meaning of the Balto-Slavic word was thus "salty; tasty, delicious; spicy".
