Antonyms[edit]


Lithuanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

PIE root
*h₂en-

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *nō; compare Latvian nùo ‎(from), Old Prussian no, na ‎(onto, against, over), Proto-Slavic *na ‎(on, to). In East Baltic the meaning somehow switched from "movement onto" to "movement away". Often connected with Ancient Greek ἀνά ‎(aná, up, along) ἄνω ‎(ánō, upwards) Avestan 𐬀𐬥𐬀 ‎(ana), Old Persian 𐎠𐎴𐎠 ‎(anā, upwards, along) < Proto-Indo-European *h₂en- ‎(up, on high). A similar Balto-Slavic loss of initial *a can be seen in ‎(under, after).
