Lithuanian

Etymology

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *mes; compare Latvian m?s, Old Prussian mes, Old Church Slavonic (my); akin to Old Armenian (mek?). This form in m replaced Proto-Indo-European *wéy ("we"), probably after the 1st person plural verbal suffix -me. At the East-Baltic stage, the oblique forms were rebuilt by analogy with j?s. Compare the Old Prussian oblique forms n?san, n?mans, and Old Church Slavonic ?, ? (nas?, nam?), from *n?s-, nos-.
