Etymology 1[edit]

Ferlus suggested that Proto-Mon-Khmer *saːm (to ooze, to bleed) (whence Proto-Vietic *saːm > tươm) is the verbal base from which the word ‘blood’ in the Austroasiatic languages is derived, except for Vietnamese and for some Vietic languages in which it was replaced by ‘sap' (Viet. máu). From PMK *saːm, Proto-Vietic *ʔa-saːmʔ ~ *p-saːmʔ (blood), Proto-Bahnaric *bhaːm (> Bahnar pham), Proto-Katuic *ʔahaam (> Pacoh aham), Proto-Khasic *snaam (>Khasi snam/'nam), Khmer ឈាម (chiəm), Mon ဆီ (c'him) and Car Nicobarese ma-hām were derived, through different affixed forms.[1]

Shorto reconstructed Proto-Mon-Khmer *ɟhaam ~ *ɟhiim (blood), based on the Khmer and Mon forms.
