Etymology[edit]

From *aineh, related to Karelian aineh and Estonian aine (loan from Finnish), probably borrowed from Proto-Norse [Term?], from Proto-Germanic *afniz (compare Swedish ämne (matter, subject)). The correspondence of Germanic *f with Finnish i may seem exceptional,[1] but has a parallel in eine.
