Word: пе́ший,
Near etymology: пеш, пе́ша, пе́ше, диал. пе́хий -- то же, сиб., укр. пíший, блр. пе́шы, др.-русск., ст.-слав. пѣшь πεζός (Супр.), болг. пеш, пе́ши (Младенов 421), сербохорв. пjе̏ше "пешком", словен. ре̣̑šji, чеш., слвц. pěší, польск. рiеszу, в.-луж. pěši, н.-луж. ре̌šу. Ср. также чеш. pěchý.
Further etymology: Скорее всего, из *pēdsi̯os, производного от и.-е. *рēd- "нога (ступня)", лат. рēs, реdis (м.) "нога", лит. pėdà, вин. pė́dą "стопа, след ноги", pėdė "ступня (чулка)", лтш. pę̂ds м. "след ноги", pę̂da "подошва, стопа", др.-инд. раdám "след ноги, стопа", дор. πώς "нога (ступня)", гот. fōtus "нога, шаг", лит. pė́sčias, pė́ksčias "пеший, пешком" (*pēdti̯os), др.-лит. pėstomis нареч. (Даукша); см. Мейе, МSL 14, 341; Ét. 379; RЕS 5, 6; Шпехт 200; Траутман, ВSW 209; Миккола, Ursl. Gr. 1, 176. Возм. также, что это образование от *ре̌хъ; см. Мейе, там же. Это последнее могло быть свободным сокращением (откуда пехо́та, см.), согласно Брандту (РФВ 23, 297), Брюкнеру (406), Вайану (RЕS 16, 247 и сл.). Менее вероятна этимология *ре̌хъ из и.-е. местн. мн. *pēdsu "в ногах", алб. роshtё "внизу", рёrроsh "снизу", ирл. ís "внизу" (Педерсен, KZ 36, 290; Kelt. Gr. 1, 50, 181; IF 5, 52; Иокль, AfslPh 29, 19; Stud. 59 и сл.), судя по знач., а также потому, что тогда ожидалось бы слав. *рěsъ; см. Эндзелин, ZfslPh 13, 76 и сл.; Вайан, там же. Сомнительно в фонетическом отношении было бы также произведение слав. формы из *pēdti̯os, образования врдхи от *pedtis, ср. др.-инд. pattiṣ, авест. pasti- "пешеход", вопреки Эндзелину (там же). Маловероятно и.-е. *pēd-kho- (Мейе, Ét. 379; Уленбек, AfslPh 16, 374) или *реdǝsоs (Миккола, IF 16, 97); см. против этого Эндзелин, там же; Ильинский, ИОРЯС 20, 4, 184. Ср. пехо́та.
