Proto-Italic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From *djous + *patēr, corresponding to Proto-Indo-European *dyḗws ph₂tḗr. Cognate with Vedic Sanskrit द्यौष्पितृ (dyáuṣ-pitṛ́).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈdjou̯s ˈpa.teːr/

Proper noun[edit]

*djous patēr m

  1. Jupiter, the Sky Father

Declension[edit]

The attestation of the Umbrian dative 𐌉𐌖𐌅𐌄𐌐𐌀𐌕𐌓𐌄 (iuvepatre), with both parts inflected separately, suggests that the two parts were still morphologically distinct. See the declensions of *djous and *patēr.
