Etymology[edit]

PIE root
*mer-

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *mer-, *mir-; compare Latvian mirt ‎(die), Old Church Slavonic мрѣти, мьрѫ ‎(mrěti, mĭrǫ, die), Russian умереть, умру ‎(umeretʹ, umru, die). The Baltic forms are from the zero-grade of Proto-Indo-European *mer-, *mr̥- ‎(to die).

The -sta present was introduced at the Balto-Slavic stage (compare Latvian mirsta); the -š- is due to the RUKI law. The acute past/present root is analogous with gim̃ti, gìmsta, gìmė, although is of unclear motivation.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): [ˈmʲɪrʲ.tʲɪ]

Verb[edit]

mir̃ti ‎(third-person present tense mìršta, third-person past tense mìrė)

  1. to die
