Comments: A Ryukyu root: Nase ú-N, Shuri ú-nù, Hateruma ù-nù, Yonaguni ù-nú etc. The form o-re is attested in OJ as 'thou' with a pejorative meaning, whence some modern dialectal forms (Kagoshima wáí, Shuri ú-nǯú, ʔjā, Nase ʔjá, Hateruma Dā̀, Yonakuni ùdà). It is not quite clear whether it is the same root as Ryukyu *o- 'this'.

Number: 131
Root: au-4, u- (: u̯ē̆-, u̯o-)
English meaning: that; other
German meaning: Pronominalstamm `jener', auch gegenüberstellend `alter, alius', `andrerseits, hinwiederum', in zwei aufeinanderfolgenden Satzgliedern gesetzt `dér einerseits - dér andrerseits', `einerseits - andrerseits'.
Material: au̯o-: Ai. av. apers. ava- `jener'; aksl. aruss. ovъ- - ovъ- `dér einerseits - dér andrerseits, der eine - der andere', ovogda - ovogda `das eine Mal - das andere Mal' (aus diesem korrelativen Gebrauche erst scheint das jener-deiktische poln. ów und das ich-deiktische serb. òvaj, ebenso nbulg. -v [*u̯o-s] entwickelt).

    u-: Ai. amú- (Akk. Sg. amúm usw.) `jener', erwachsen aus Akk. Sg. m. *am (= idg. *e-m `eum') + *um (Akk. Sg. unseres St. u); s. Wackernagel-Debrunner III 550 f.

    Toch. A ok, В uk `noch', A oki `wie, und', A okāk `bis zu', vielleicht nur *u-g (Schwundstufe zu got. auk); ob dazu В om(p)ne, omte `da'?

    Partikel ai. u `auch, andrerseits, hinwiederum, dagegen', hervorhebend bes. nach Verbalformen, Pron. und Partikeln ( `und nicht, nicht' = ná́ u, athō = atha u), gr. -υ in πάν-υ `gar sehr', got. -u Fragepartikel (auch die Enklitika -uh aus -u-qʷe, s. Brugmann IF. 33, 173); dieses u auch in ai. a-sāú m. f. `jener', av. hāu m. f., ap. hauv m. `jener', Wackernagel-Debrunner III 529, 541.

    Partikel ai. u-, in beiden Gliedern `einerseits - andrerseits, bald - bald, sowohl - als auch', oder nur im zweiten Glied, etwas entgegensetzend `und, auch' (nachved. in ity-uta, kim-uta, praty-uta), av. uta, ap. utā `und, und auch'; griech. ἠύτε `ebenso wie' aus *ἠF(ε) + υτε (ursprüngl. `wie andrerseits', `wie auch'), aber hom. εὖτε `ὅτε' aus εὖ + τε nach Debrunner IF. 45, 185 ff.; δευ̃τε ist zugebildet zu δευ̃ρο; auch οὗτος, αὕτη, του̃το am wahrscheinlichsten aus ὁ, ἁ, το + υτε mit nachträglicher Endflexion; wgerm. -od in as. thar-od, ahd. thar-ot `dorthin, dort', as. her-od, ahd. her-ot `hierhin', wonach auch as. hwarod `wohin, wo', ahd. warot `wohin' (aus *ute? oder aus *utā̆? Auch *aute, *auti, siehe unten, wäre mögliche Grundform).

    Hierher av. uiti, gthav. ūitī `so', nicht aber lat. ut und utī, alat. utei.

    Neben u, utā usw. steht mit der Ablautstufe idg. au-:

    gr. αὖ `andrerseits, wiederum', *αὖτι `wiederum' (erweitert zu ion. αὖτις, gort. αὖτιν, nach antiken Grammatikern für `auf der Stelle, dort', woher αὐτίκα `im Augenblick, sogleich', αὖ-θι `daselbst', αὖτε `wieder, auch, ferner'; lat. aut (*auti) `oder', autem `aber' (zur Form s. WH. I 87), osk. aut, auti `aut' und `autem' (zur Bed. s. v. Planta II 465), umbr. ute, ote `aut'; vielleicht auch got. auk `denn, aber', anord. auk `auch, und', ags. ēac, as. ōk `auch', ahd. ouh `und, auch, aber', nhd. auch = gr. αὖ-γε `wiederum'.

    Pedersen Pron. dém. 315 vermutet eine dem gr. αὖ entsprechende Form im Anlaut von alb.a-që `so viel'. - Brugmann BSGW. 60, 23 a 2 reiht auch gr. αὐ-τός als `von ihm aus' an; andere Deutungen s. bei Schwyzer Gr. Gr. I 613 f.

    Mit r-Formans airan. avar `hier', lit. aurè `siehe da!', tiefstufig umbr. uru `illo', ura-ku `ad illam', ures `illis' (orer ose eher mit = als = lit. au); vielleicht δευ̃ρο `hierher, wohlan' (δεύρω nach ὀπίσσω u. dgl., inschr. δευ̃ρε nach ἄγε) aus *δέ-υρο (δε `hier'+ αὐρο `her'), Schwyzer Gr. Gr. I 612, 632.

    u̯ḗ-, u̯o-: Die Bed. `oder' (= `andrerseits') bes. in ai. `oder' (auch `selbst, sogar; indessen; wohl, etwa'; ebenso bekräftigend vāi), av. ap. `oder' (auch Partikel der Hervorhebung und Versicherung), ai. av. - `entweder - oder', gr. ἠ-(F)έ, ἤ (mit Proklisenbetonung für ἦ-()ε, wie noch im 2. Glied der Doppelfrage), lat. -vĕ `oder' (auch in ceu, sīve, seu, nēve, neu), auch wohl ir. nó, abret. nou `oder' (wenn aus *ne-u̯e `oder nicht' mit Verblassen der Negativbedeutung ursprüngl. in negativen Sätzen, Thurneysen Grammar 551; nicht wahrscheinlicher nach Pedersen KG. I 441 ein erstarrter Imperativ *neu̯e des Verbums ir. at-nói `er vertraut ihn an', gr. νεύω); toch. В wa-t `wo'.

    Vgl. auch ai. i-vá (: va = ἰ-δέ: δέ) `gleichwie, geradeso', ē-vá `so, geradeso, eben, nur', ēvám `so' (verhält sich zu bekräftigendem vāi und - wie ē-na- `dieser' zu - `auf verschiedene Weise', ursprüngl. `so und so'; mit ē-vá deckt sich gr. οἶ()ος `allein' (`*gerade nur dér'), av. aēva-, apers. aiva- `ein' (vgl. mit dem no-Demonstrativ idg. *oi-no-s `ein').

North Caucasian etymology :

Proto-North Caucasian: *ʔu ( ~ *hu)
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: demonstrative pronoun (that)
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *ħu
Proto-Tsezian: *wa-
Proto-Lak: wa
Proto-Lezghian: *ʔu- / *uV-
Proto-Khinalug: hu
Proto-West Caucasian: *wV
Notes: This stem should be probably kept apart from PEC *ʔŏ 'demonstrative pronoun', since they are opposed in some languages; however, contaminations were certainly possible. In some Eastern languages (Lezg. and Khin.) the root tends to mean 'that (above the speaker)'. See Абдоков 1983, 139-140.

Avar-Andian etymology :

Protoform: *ħu-
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: that
Andian language: hu-du-
Akhvakh: hu-
Chamalal: u-da-
Tindi: o-,o-ja-
Karata: ho-
Bagvalal: o-
Godoberi: ho-
Comments: In Kar. besides ho- there exists a synonymous variant wu- (wu-ʎu-b, wu-gu-b, wu-du-b). The stem *ħu- 'that' is opposed to PA *ħo-/*ħi- 'this' (q.v.), although they sometimes get contaminated. It is often used in conjunction with another PA deictic rood *dV- q.v. Some languages reveal here (as also in the case of *ħo-/*ħi- ) a loss of initial *ħ-: it is possible that a combination of deictic (emphatic) *ħV- + deictic *ʔu- is reflected.
