Basque[edit]

Alternative forms[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. At least two proposals exist:

  1. from Spanish asno or Latin asinus, although phonetically improbable;
  2. from hartz (bear) +‎ -to (diminutive suffix), phonetically impeccable, but semantically strange.

If the second is correct, then may be related to Aquitanian *asto, found in *Asto-ilunno.[1][2]

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (standard) IPA(key): /as̺.to/
  • (file)

Noun[edit]

asto anim

  1. donkey
