Latin[edit]

Noun[edit]

līna

  1. nominative/accusative/vocative plural of līnum

Livonian[edit]

Alternative forms[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From East Baltic, just as Estonian lina. Compare Lithuanian linas and Latvian lini.

Hypothetised to be derived from Proto-Indo-European *lino-, although it's impossible to reconstruct a common PIE protoform due to discrepancies with other European branches and absence of cognates outside of Europe.

If originally a non-IE loanword, locating the source is impossible because cultivation of linen was widespread in the region since the Neolithic.
