Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Formed as *bujь +‎ *-ěti (or *-ati) from the eh₁-fientive *bʰowH-yeh₁-ti (or respectively the eh₂-causative *bʰowH-eh₂yé-ti), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *bʰew- (to inflate, to grow). The secondary meaning related to rampaging and aggressiveness may have been partially influenced by the onomatopoeic *bew- (to howl, to blow).

Verb[edit]

*bujаti impf

  1. to grow rampant, to thrive
  2. to rage
