Proto-Indo-European[edit]

Reconstruction[edit]

Italic, Celtic and Greek point to PIE *eḱs. Balto-Slavic *iś and *iź (either could be word-sandhi variant of the other) forms have unexplained initial *i-. However, due to aspirates in the old compounds such as ἔσχατος (éskhatos) and ἐχθός (ekhthós), a pre-form *h₁eǵʰs is needed.

Adverb[edit]

*h₁eǵʰs

  1. out
