Word: и́же,
Near etymology: я́же, е́же "который", церк., др.-русск., ст.-слав. иже, же, ѥже ὅς, ἥ, ὅ, стар. чеш. jenž м., jеž ж., ср. р., др.-польск. jiże, jiż.
Further etymology: Содержит и.-е. относит. местоим.; ср. др.-инд. уаs, уā, уаd, др.-перс. уа-, греч. ὅς, ἥ, ὅ, фриг. ιος "кото- рый, кто" и част. žе (см. же).

Number: 439
Root: e-3, ei-, i-, fem. ī-
English meaning: this, etc. (demonstrative stem); one
German meaning: paradigmatisch verbundene Pronominalstamme `der, er'
General comments: (e, i wohl ursprünglich Demonstrativpartikel). Zu i- gesellt sich der Relativstamm i̯o-. Zusammenfassende Darstellungen bieten bes. Brugmann Dem. 32 ff., BSGW. 60, 41 ff., Grundr. II2 2, 324 ff., Pedersen Pron. dém. 311 ff.
Material: A. Kasuell verwendete Formen:

    ai. ayám `er' = gthav. ауǝ̄m, jav. aēm (nach ahám `ich' erweitertes ar. *ai = idg. *ei; idg. *ei vom St. e-, wie *qʷo-i vom St. kʷo-, nicht Hochstufe zu i-); ai. idám `id' (ohne die sekundäre -am-Erweiterung ai. ít, av. it̃ als hervorhebende Partikel), ai. iyám (erweitert aus *ī-) = av. īm (d. i. iyǝm), apers. iyam `sie, ea', Akk. Sg. m. ai. imám (erweitert aus *im) = apers. imam (darnach f. imām usw.), Gen. m. n. asyá, ásya = av. ahe, fem. ai. asyā́ḥ = av. aiŋ́hā̊, Dat. m. n. asmāí, ásmāi = av. ahmāi, Gen. Pl. m. n. ēšā́m = av. aēšąm, Dat. Abl. Pl. m. ai. ēbhyáḥ = av. aēibyō usw.; gthav. as[-čit̃], ǝ̄ je einmal n. Sg. m.; vom St. ā- Pl. fem. Gen. ai. āsā́m = av. ā́ŋhąm, Dat. Abl. ābhyáḥ = av. ābyō usw.

    Kуpr. ἴν `eum, eam' (scheint auch in μίν, νίν verbaut, s. Schwyzer Gr. Gr. I 6081); hierher lesb. thess. hom. ἴα (*ii̯ǝ) `una' (ursprünglich `gerade die, nur die'), hom. ἰη̃ς, ἰῃ̃, danach auch n. hom. ἰῳ̃?; anders Schwyzer Gr. Gr. I 588 (*s[m]i̯ās).

    lat. is, id Nom. Sg. m. (alt auch īs, inschr. eis, eis-dem, entweder mit -s ausgestattetes idg. *ei = ai. ay-ám, wie man auch für umbr. er-e und bestimmter für ir. (h)ē `er' eine solche Grundf. *ei-s erwägt, oder Umbildung von is nach eiius, e(i)ī); Akk. altlat. im (= gr. ἴν) und em, gedoppelt emem `eundem' (vom Parallelst. e-?) = Adv. em `tum' und *im in inter-im `unterdessen', in-de `von da', Dat. Abl. Pl. ībus (: ai. ēbhyáḥ); osk. iz-io `is', idic, ídík `id' (das Anhängsel -ík, -ic ist selber das adverbiell erstarrte n. *id + *ke), osk. ís-íd-um `idem' und esídum ds., umbr. er-e `is' ers-e er̆-e `id', umbr. Dat. Sg. esmei, esmik, Gen. Pl. osk. eisun-k, umbr. esom (= ai. ēṣ̌ā́m); daraus wurde ein St. *eiso- außer in Nom.-Akk.-Formen gefolgert, z. B. osk. eizois `iis', umbr. eru-ku `cum eo', doch ist immerhin mit einem alten n. *ed zu rechnen, vgl. lat. ecce `da! sieh da!' (wohl aus *ed-ke) = osk. ekk-um (*ed-ke-um) `item', und vielleicht Akk. mēd, tēd, sēd, wenn aus *, *, * + ed, wenngleich dies nur mehr adverbiell erstarrtes *ed voraussetzt;

    ital. eo-, , im Osk.-Umbr. nur in den Nom. (außer Sg. m. n.) und Akk., im Lat. auf fast alle Casus obliqui ausgedehnt (nur eius aus *esi̯o-s, danach Dat. ei steht abseits), z. B. lat. ea, eam, osk. iúk, ioc `еа', ionc `eum', u. eam `eam', sind von der dem ai. Nom. ay-ám entsprechenden Form *e(i̯)om ausgegangen, die wegen ihres Ausganges -om als Akk. empfunden wurde und eam usw. nach sich zog; iam bei Varro 1.1. 5, 166 und 8, 44 wohl Schreibfehler für eam. - Aus dem Lat. hierher ipse aus *-is-pse (wegen alat. fem. eapse), is-te (aber ille erst danach umgebildetes ollus), vgl. umbr. estu `istum, ista';

    air. ē () `еr' (wohl *ei-s), s. oben; ed (hed) `es' (aus *id-ā = got. ita, womit formell identisch ai. idā `jetzt'; aber lit. tadà `dann' erfordert wegen ostlit. tadù einen Auslaut auf Nasal); Nom. Pl. ē () m. f. n. = mkymr. wy (hwynt-wy) wohl wenigstens zum Teil aus idg. *ei (Näheres bei Thurneysen Gr. 283), Akk. Sg. bret. en `ihn, es' (infigiert), cymr. e (ebenso), ir. -a n- (ebenso), -i (suffigiert hinter Verben; hinter Präp. teils ebenso, z. B. airi aus *ari-en `auf ihn', teils nur mehr als Mouillierung nachwirkend, z. B. foir aus *u̯or-en), Gen. Sg. *esi̯o, f. *esi̯ās `eius', proklit. a, älter z. T. noch e, æ; cymr. *eið- nach dem Vorbild der konjugierten Präpositionen zu mcymr. eidaw, f. eidi differenziert, womit identisch air. a `sein' (len.) und `ihr' (geminierend), cymr. corn. y, bret. e, usw.; über air. betontes āi, āe `eius' und Dat. Pl. -ib s. Thurneysen Gr. 285;

    got. is `er', Akk. in-a, neutr. it-a (s. o.) `es' (dazu neugebildete Pluralformen: got. eis aus *ei̯-es, Akk. ins, Dat. im, ahd. as. im) ahd. er, ir, Akk. in-an, in; n. iz; as. in-a, n. it; anord. Relativpartikel es, er, run. eR; vom St. e-: Gen. Sg. got. m. is, f. izos, ahd. m. n.es(is), f. ira(iru), as. es(is), era(ira); Gen. Pl. got. ize, izo, as. ahd. iro; Dat. Sg. f. got. izai, ahd. (mit anderer Endung) iru; m. n. got. imma, ahd. imu, imo, as. imu; vom St. ī- got. Akk. ija (ahd. sia usw. mit s-Vorschlag nach dem Nom. sī̆), wonach neugebildete Pluralformen, got. Nom. Akk. ijōs (ahd. sio);

    lit. jìs `er', Akk. jį̃ (zum anl. j- s. Brugmann Grundr. II2 2, 331), fem. jì, Akk. ją̃ (jõs, jaĩ usw.);

    aber aksl. Akk. Sg. f. jǫ, Nom. Akk. Pl. f. ję (über die weiteren Kasus s. Brugmann aaO.), Akk. Sg. m. -(j)ь in vidity-jь `videt eum', vъń-ь `in eum' usw. (über weiteres slav. Zubehör, z. B. jakъ `qualis', jelikъ `quantus', s. Berneker 416 f.) eher aus idg. i̯o-;

    nach Pedersen Hitt. 58 f. soll das Pron. -aš `er' usw. ein o im Ablaut zu idg. *esi̯o usw. enthalten (?); vom Stamm i- hat sich vielleicht das n. it `es' in der Verbindung netta `und es dir' (*nu-it-ta) erhalten (Friedrich Heth. Elem. I 27); vgl. hierogl. hitt. is `dieser', Akk. jan.

    B. Relativstamm i̯o-:

    ai. yás, yā́, yád, av. , gr. ὅς, ἥ, ὅ `welcher', phryg. ιος (νι) `wer immer', slav. *i̯a- in i-že, f. ja-že usw., balt. u. slav. in der Bestimmtheitsform des Adjektivs, z. B. lit. geràs-is, apr. pirmann-ien, -in, aksl. dobry-jь (s. Berneker 416 f., Trautmann 105 f.). Zweifelhaftes (lit. jeĩ `wenn', got. jabai `wenn') s. bei Brugmann II2 2, 347 f. (Lit.); Keltisches bei Pedersen KG. II 235, Thurneysen Gr. 323, doch kann cymr. a nicht dazu gehören.

    Komparativ ai. yatará-, av. yatāra-, gr. (kret. gort.) ὅτερος `welcher von beiden'; vgl. ai. yāvat, gr. ἕως, dor. ἇς (*ἁ:Fος) `solange als', ai. yād `insofern, wie' = gr. ὡς `wie'; s. Schwyzer Gr. Gr. I 528, 614 f.

    C. Partikeln und Adverbia:

    Über die adnominale und adverbale Partikel ē̆, ō̆ s. oben S. 280 f.

    e-, ē- Augment (`*dann, damals') ai. a- (auch ā-, z. B. ā-vr̥ṇak), av. a-, arm. e- (z. B. e-lik` = ἔ-λιπε), gr. ἐ- (auch ἠ-, z. B. hom. ἤείδη).

    e- in ai. a-sā́u `jener' (neben av. hāu), a-dáḥ `jenes; dort', a-dyā́, a-dyá `heute' (Stammkompositum?), -ha `sicher, ja';

    arm. e-t`e (neben t`e) `daß, wenn';

    gr. ἐ-χθές, ἐ-κει̃, ἐ-κει̃νος (neben κει̃νος);

    osk. e-tanto, umbr. e-tantu `tanta', osk. päl. e-co `hic', osk. exo- (*e-ke-so) `hic';

    aksl. (j)e-se `еccе' (neben se ds), aruss. ose, russ. é-to `da, dahier', é-tot `der hier, dieser' (neben tot `jener'); serb. bulg. e-to `da' (usw., s. Berneker 259 f);

    unsicherer got. i-bai, i-ba Fragepartikel, ahd. ibu, oba, as. anord. ef `ob' und `wenn', ags. gif, engl. if ds.;

    über *eno- in gr. ἔνη usw. siehe besonderes Stichwort.

    Zu e- auch die Komparativbildung av. atāra- `dieser, der von beiden', ds., alb. ját()rë `anderer', umbr. etro- `anderer', lat. in cēterus `der andere oder übrige', aksl. eterъ, jeterъ `irgendwer', Pl. jeteri(ji) `einige', nsorb. wótery.

    ed (Nom. Akk. Sg. n.): über lat. ecce, mēd s. oben; av. at̃ zur Hervorhebung des vorhergehenden Wortes (wie it_, s. unten; Bartholomae Altiran. Wb. 67); wohl auch in aksl. jed-inъ, -ьпъ `einer' als `*gerade, nur einer'; ob auch ksl. jede, kyjь `quidam' aus gedoppeltem *ed-ed oder nach ide im Ausgang gerichtetem *ed? (Berneker 261, bestritten von Brückner KZ. 45, 302, vgl. MeilletSlave comm.2 444.)

    ēd und ōd (Abl.): ai. āt `darauf; und; (im Nachsatz) so', av. āat̃ `darauf, dann; und; aber; denn', ostlit. ė̃ `und aber' (aksl. i `und' ist eher *ei), lit. `und, aber' = aksl. a `aber'.

    ei (Lok.): gr. εἰ `*so, wenn' (εἶ-τα `dann', εἴ-θε `möchte doch!', ἐπ-εί (vgl. el. ἐπ-ή) `da', ἔπ-ειτα; daneben dial. αἰ, Lok. des f. St. ᾱ, und ἠ Instr. `wenn'; aksl. i `und, auch' (vgl. ti `und' vom St. *to-; von Brückner KZ. 46, 203 dagegen = lit. teĩ gesetzt), got. -ei Relativpartikel (vgl. þei vom St. *to- in gleicher Geltung), z. B. sa-ei `welcher', nach Junker KZ. 43, 348 auch die arm. Abl.-Endung -ē. Siehe auch unten ī-.

    em (alat. em, s. oben S. 282) liegt vor in gr. ἔνθα `da, dahin, damals', rel. `wo, wohin, woher', ἔνθεν `von da, von wo' usw. (Schwyzer Gr. Gr. I 628); über air. and s. oben S. 37 und vgl. kypr. ἄνδα αὕτη.

    e-tos: ai. -taḥ `von hier' (s. unter eti).

    i: wahrscheinlich im Lok. auf idg. -i; ferner die Grundlage der Komparativbildung *i-tero-: ai. i-tara- `der andere' (neuiran. Entsprechungen bei Bartholomae IF. 38, 26 f.);

    lat. íterum `zum andern, zum zweiten Male'; ferner in ai. i-va `wie' (vgl. oben ἠ-ε `wie'); in gr. ἰ-δέ `und' (vgl. ἠ-δέ).

    i-dha und i-dhe:

    ai. i-há, prākr. idha, av. iδa `hier';

    gr. ἰθαγενής `(*hier geboren', daher:) eingeboren, rechtmäßig geboren' (über ἰθαιγενής s. Schwyzer Gr. Gr. I 448);

    lat. ibī `da, dort' (die Lautentwicklung dh zu f, b nach ubī; im Auslaut nach den Lokativen der o-St. gerichtet), umbr. ife `ibī, еō', ifont `ibīdem' (die ar. und ital. Formen könnten an sich auch -dhe enthalten, vgl. ai. ku-ha = aksl. kъ-de `wo', sь-de `hier' und Schwyzer Gr. Gr. I 6274);

    mcymr. yd, у ncymr. ydd Verbalpartikel, corn. yz, yth-, bret. ez-? (s. Pedersen KG. II 234, Lewis-Pedersen 243, Thurneysen Gr. 324 f.); dazu auch air. infigiertes -id- aus *id(h)e oder*id(h)i.

    i-t(h)-: ai. itthā́, itthā́d `hier, dort', av. iþā̆ `so', ai. itthám `so' und mit -t- (-tǝ oder-ti?) ai. íti `so'; lat. ita `so', item `ebenso, ebenfalls', umbr. itek `ita', mcymr. Präverb yt-, ncymr. yd-, z. B. in yr yd-wyf `ich bin'; lit. dial. it `durchaus; wie', ìt, ỹt `ganz, sehr', lett. it, itin `recht, eben'.

    ī́ (betont zur Verstärkung eines deiktischen Wortes, unbetont hinter einem relativ gebrauchten Wort):

    ai. ī́ (auch ī́m), av. ī́ hervorhebend nachgestellt, nach Relativ in ved. yad-ī;

    gr. οὑτοσ-ί̄, -ί̄ν (= ai. īm? oder erst jüngere Erw. von -ī́ ?), ἐκεινοσ-ί:, el. το-ΐ;

    umbr. wohl in po-ei `qui' (usw), lat. in utī (aus *uta-ī);

    air. (h)ī deiktische Partikel und Stützpartikel vor Relativsätzen;

    got. -ei Relativpartikel in sa-ei, iz-ei, ik-ei hingegen wohl idg. *ei, s. oben;

    aksl. verstärkend in to-i (s. Berneker 416), aksl. e-i `ja, wahrlich' (? Berneker 296).

    Auch im 1. Gliede von ai. ī-dr̥c̨- `so aussehend, so geartet', lit. ý-pačiai `besonders', y-patùs `einsam, allein, abgesondert, eigentümlich'.

    Zweifelhaft, ob aus idg. *ei oder ī: ags. ī́dæges `desselben Tages', īsiðes `zu gleicher Zeit', īlca (*ī-līca) `derselbe', womit vielleicht anord. ī dag `heute' (obwohl als Präp. ī gefühlt) und die darnach gebildeten ī gǣr `gestern', ī fjǫrð `πέρυσι' zusammenhängen;

    unklar ist āi (Lok. fem. in adverbieller Erstarrung) in ai. āi-šámaḥ adv. `heuer', Bed. `gerade an dém - demselben' wie gr. ἰῳ̃ ἤματι, s. Schulze KZ. 42, 96 = Kl. Schr. 5396, Holthausen KZ. 47, 310, Junker KZ. 43, 438 f., der mit dem ai. Worte auch arm. aižm aus *ai žam vereinigt. Dasselbe *āi in Verbindung mit den Pron.-St. *k̂o-, *to-, *no- enthalten die arm. Demonstrativa ai-s, ai-d, ai-n (Junker ааО.); vgl. Benveniste Origines 129 ff., Schwyzer Gr. Gr. I 548 f.

    i̯ām (= Akk. Sg. f.): lat. iam `jetzt, bereits, schon', got. ja, ahd. jā̆ `ja'; mit der Endung des Lok. Sg. auf *-ou- der u-Stämme: *i̯ou, *i̯u `schon' (von Kretschmer KZ. 31, 466 dagegen zu *i̯eu- `jung' gestellt) : lit. jaũ `schon', lett. jàu, aksl. ju `schon', schwundstufig got. ahd. as. ags. ju `schon' (die Bildung hätte Vergleichbares an got. þau, þau-h, ags. þea-h, ai. tú `aber' zum St. *to-).

    i̯āi (== Lok. Sg. f.): got. jai `fürwahr', nhd. (jeh), umbr. ie etwa `iam' in ie-pru, ie-pi; aber cymr. ie (zweisilbig) `ja' aus mcymr. ī-ef `dies (ist) es'.

    D. Zusammensetzungen und Ableitungen (soweit nicht oben eingereiht):

    ai. ē-šá, ē-šā́, ē-tát, av. аēšа-, aēta- `der da' (*ei-so, -to-, während arm. aid aus *āi-to-, s. oben; osk. umbr. eiso-, ero- dagegen aus dem Gen. Pl. *eisōm);

    gr. οἶνος, οἶνη `eins auf dem Würfel';

    lat. ūnus, alt oinos;

    air. ōen `ein'; cymr. bret. corn. un `ein (auch unbestimmter Artikel)';

Abkhaz: ja-rá

Adyghe: jǝj

Ubykh: jǝ-
Comments: In PAT used as the 3d p. pronoun *ja-ra 'he'; cf. also *jǝ (Abkh. j(ǝ)-, Abaz. j(ǝ)- the verbal prefix of the 3d person) and *-jǝ within complex demonstrative stems (*a-nǝ-jǝ 'that', *a-rǝ-jǝ 'this' > Abkh., Abaz. ani, ari etc.).

    In AK the root functions as the 3d p. possessive prefix (jǝ- 'his'), see Шагиров 1, 180.

    In Ubykh jǝ- is the demonstrative pronoun expressing near deixis ('this'); the same morpheme is probably used as a personal prefix of the 3d p. pl.
