Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From earlier Proto-Balto-Slavic *aśmas, from Proto-Indo-European oḱ(tṓwos) (rendered as *h₃eḱth̥₃-wos in Derksen 2008) + a suffix *-mos extracted from *septmós (seventh).[1] Compare Sanskrit अष्टम (aṣṭama, eighth), Avestan 𐬀𐬯𐬙𐬆𐬨𐬀 (astəma, eighth), where the same process operated. Cognate with obsolete Lithuanian ãšmas (eighth), Old Prussian asmus (eighth) and partly with Latin octāvus (eighth) and Ancient Greek ὄγδοος (ógdoos, eighth).
