Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Finnic *aika. Cognate to Finnish aika, Ingrian aiga, Livvi aigu, Ludian aig, Veps aig, Votic aika and Livonian āiga. Possibly from or akin to Proto-Germanic *aiwaz (compare Gothic 𐌰𐌹𐍅𐍃 (aiws, age, eternity), Old Norse ævi (lifetime), English aye). Another possibility is the borrowing from a Baltic language: compare Lithuanian eigà (gait, flow) or Latvian eja (passageway, tunnel) (from Lithuanian eĩti and Latvian iet respectively, both meaning 'to go').

  • IPA(key): /ˈɑe̯ɡ̊/
