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 Lithuanian nėrà from neyrà. 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]
