EB1911 - Volume 01 - Page 001 - 1.svg This etymology is missing or incomplete. Please add to it, or discuss it at the Etymology scriptorium.
Particularly: “is the freeze/burn gloss in Proto-Indo-European *prews- (to freeze, burn) consistent with contemporary reconstructions? It is from Pokorny, is not normally cited elsewhere on Wiktionary, and has a sceptical gloss in the only Wiktionary non-Latin `burn' cognate, Sanskrit प्लोषति (ploṣati).”
