Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *glaušas; also found as *glušas, as in cognate Lithuanian glùšas (dumb). Per Vasmer, also cognate with Lithuanian glusnùs, klusnùs (obedient, attentive), Samogitian dialectal klùsas (muffled), Latvian kluss (quiet), where the forms in *k are perhaps more ancient and the forms in *g due to "expressive transformation". Possibly related to *glupъ (stupid, foolish).
