Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Probably related to Lithuanian gum̃bas (bulge), Latvian gum̃ba (tumor).

The sense ‘lip, mouth’ is in all probability figurative and should not be separated from the sense ‘mushroom’. Sometimes an accentual difference is reconstructed, but that is problematic.

Noun[edit]

*gǫ̀ba f[1][2][3]

  1. mushroom
  2. lip, mouth

Inflection[edit]
