Formatted abstract
Three approaches to the etymology of Slavic *edfn- are developed under two
complementary assumptions about the age of the forms reconstructed with short second
syllable. These three approaches are tested to determine which best yields the spread of
attested accentual and other forms listed in representative sources. Derivations containing
the PIE neuter deictic *h1ed as first component are found to be the most fruitful if it ·
is assumed that anlaut laryngeals remained in Slavic until the completion of both Winter's
law and the subsequent loss by dissimilation of one or more laryngeal reflexes, including
the laryngeal component of PIE *d, in this compound word, all these reflexes having
merged by this time in some kind of glottal constriction. Comments are also offered on
the etymologies of Slavic *ed(o)va and Lith. vos.
