Lithuanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *kadaˀn, compare Latvian kad, Old Prussian kaden. Equivalent to kas +‎ -ada. Despite the external similarity with Sanskrit कदा (kadā́, when), there are a number of formal difficulties. Firstly, the original form (as in Prussian) had a final nasal, and acute accentuation, evidenced in the derivative kadángi (since, because) and dialectal kadù. Secondly, the lack of Winter's Law suggests Proto-Indo-European rather than d. However, a genetic connection with Sanskrit is still conceivable. Probably unrelated to Proto-Slavic *kogъda (when).[1]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Slavic *kogъda, a compound of *ko (from Proto-Indo-European *kʷos) and *gъda, genitive singular of *godъ (compare Old Church Slavonic годъ (godŭ, right time)), thus originally meaning 'at what time'.
