Latvian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Reduced form of navaid from nevaid (both still attested in Latvian dialects), originally the negative form of vaid (to be located, to be). (G. F. Stenders, in his 1774 grammar, mentions under nevaid the reduced forms neva, nava and even nav' with an apostrophe.) This form replaced an earlier neir, neira (from ir, ira); compare Latvian nėrà. Forms of vaid are occasionally attested in folk tales and songs; A. Bīlenšteins once heard its infinitive form vaist. It was probably an old perfect form, from Proto-Indo-European *weyd- (to see, to know) (“to see (around, where one is)” > “to find oneself, to be located, to be”); cf. Lithuanian vaidalas (apparition, ghost).[1]
