As for the etymology, while English uses the term "Slav" derived from "slava" (fame), in many languages the term uses the root "slov-" and is, as far as I know, derived from "slovo" (word - thus "Slavs" as "speakers of the word / language"). - Filip 21:02, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

I cleaned out that etymology that someone posted. Awaiting references for a detailed treatment of the etymology. --- Alexander 007 17:09, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

Also Slave?[edit]

Webster 1913 lists alternative forms Sclav and Slave. Searching for evidence for the latter (rather than text about slaves) is hard. Equinox 13:09, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
