Etymology[edit]

PIE root
*h₃emh₃-

Attestations with the meaning “power, consciousness” support a connection with Sanskrit अम ‎(áma-, strength), Avestan 𐬇𐬨𐬀 ‎(ə̄ma, attacking power, strength, potence)[1]; From Proto-Indo-European *h₃emh₃- ‎(take hold of; be strong). This root has been connected with Ancient Greek ὄμνυμι ‎(ómnumi, swear), Sanskrit अमन्ति ‎(amánti, take hold of, swear), and most likely Latin amō ‎(love).[2]

Must be separated from ãmalioti ‎(talk nonsense), of onomatopoeic origin. See am̃sėti ‎(yap, yelp).
