Altaic etymology :

Proto-Altaic: *ḗna(kV)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: middle, width
Russian meaning: середина, ширина
Turkic: *ēn
Mongolian: *eŋ
Tungus-Manchu: *(x)ene-kǖ
Korean: *ánh
Japanese: *nàká
Comments: VEWT 43, Martin 234. Note a common Altaic derivation in *-kV, reflected in all languages except Turkic; for TM we suppose a semantic development 'sheath' < 'receptacle' < 'inside, middle'. Jpn. has lost the first vowel in this archaic trisyllabic structure, and Kor. has rising tone also due to contraction.

Word: в,
Near etymology: во, вн- -- предл. с вин. и местн. пп., также приставка: укр. в, у, блр. в, у, др.-русск. въ, въI(н\)-, ст.-слав. въ, въ(н)- εἰς, κατὰ, πρός, ἐν (Супр.), болг. в, във, сербохорв. у, ва-, словен. v, чеш. v, v(n)-, слвц. v, vo, польск. w, we, w(n)- и т. д. Праслав. ступень редукции *vъn- из *ъn от полной ступени вокализма on- (см. на ону́ча и у-).
Further etymology: Родственно др.-прусск. en "в", лтш. ìe- "в", лит. į̃ "в", "вовнутрь", диал. in, int, греч. ἐν, лат. en, in, ирл. in-, гот. in, нов.-в.-н. in "в"; Эндзелин, Лтш. предл. 1, 87, 91; Траутман, BSW 69.
