Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From a reflex of Proto-Germanic *walhaz. Elmar Seebold (2015) suggests a Gothic intermediary. Saskia Pronk-Tiethoff also claims an intermediary without explicitly mentioning Gothic. She states that the exact donor language cannot be determined, but notes that the borrowing must have happened in a situation where Germanic, Slavic and Latin/Romance speakers interacted, citing the possibility of a borrowing at the lower Danube region during the fourth to fifth centuries.

Noun[edit]

*vòlxъ m

  1. a Roman, a speaker of a Romance language
