Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *teptei, with a regular loss of medial *-p- in the infinitive stem due to the law of open syllables. p has been restored in many of the daughters from the present stem by analogy.

Cognate with Lithuanian tèpti ‎(to smear, grease). Only Balto-Slavic, without other Indo-European cognates.

Verb[edit]

*teti

  1. to beat
