Lithuanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *mes; compare Latvian mẽs, Old Prussian mes, Old Church Slavonic мꙑ(my); akin to Old Armenian մեք(mekʿ). This form in m replaced Proto-Indo-European *wéy(we), probably after the 1st person plural verbal suffix -me. At the East-Baltic stage, the oblique forms were rebuilt by analogy with jūs. Compare the Old Prussian oblique forms nūsan, nūmans, and Old Church Slavonic насъ, намъ(nasŭ, namŭ), from *n̥s-, nos-.
