This Proto-Slavic entry contains reconstructed words and roots. As such, the term(s) in this entry are not directly attested, but are hypothesized to have existed based on comparative evidence.

Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *auṣ- (or possibly *auṣ-i-, if reconstructed as an i-stem), from Proto-Indo-European *h₂ṓws.

Noun[edit]

*ȗxo n

  1. ear

Declension[edit]

Traditionally reconstructed as an s-stem. Derksen reconstructs an o-stem instead, while Halla-aho reconstructs an i-stem (*ušь) on the basis of the Baltic evidence and the OCS dual forms, albeit at an earlier stage of Proto-Slavic than that represented here.
