Whtevi[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Whtevi lipoq, from Proto-Lyndian *lebʰù ‎(banner, mane (of a horse)) (compare Modern Basque lepo), borrowed from the same source from which Proto-Uralic *lepu, lepk- ‎(flag) (compare Finnish lippu, Hungarian lobogó, Saami leavga) and possibly from which Proto-Indo-European *leh₂b- ‎(to hang loose, to drift). The word was probably alien to both Proto-Uralic, Proto-Lyndian, and Proto-Indo-European, as the expected original form of the word is approximately *leb̥ɣ̬̜ʷ ‎(that which waves, flies), which featured multiple voice distinctions and fricative syllabicity.
Potentially also related to Hungarian lóg ‎(to hang, be suspended), Arabic علق ‎(`allaqa, to cling, have an attachment).
