Uralic etymology :

Number: 1
Proto: *aća
> Nostratic: > Nostratic
English meaning: meadow with a brook, valley
German meaning: (Bach)wiese, Tal
Estonian: aas (gen. aasu, aasa) 'Wiese, Bachwiese'
Udmurt (Votyak): aź-dor 'безлесистая местность' ?
Komi (Zyrian): aʒ́ (SM VO) 'пойма (SM), прорубь (VO)', Lu. aʒ́ 'gute, trockene Wiese'
Hungarian: dial. aszó 'Tal, niederung; (aung.) Fluß, Bach'
K. Redei's notes: Das wotj. Wort kann nur dann hierher gestellt werden, wenn seine frühere Bedeutung 'Wiesenrand, Steppe' war und es nicht mit dem Kompositum az'-dor 'переднее место' ('fore-place') identisch ist. Zu dem ung. Wort s. auch *s8s'3 'trocken, dorren' Ug. (Réd.)
K. Reshetnikov's notes: Hun. -s- (orthographically sz) points to Ur. *s', not *c'. The reconstruction of the final *-a for the Uralic stem is apparently based on Hu. *asa-k (see Ugret.dbf) as well as on the -a(-) in the second syllable of the Est. oblique forms (the loss of the final vowel in Est. and Perm. gives no certain information about its quality). The Est. oblique forms with -u (like aasu) are likely to be secondary, having arisen as a result of analogical processes (influence of other declination types). The length of the first syllable vowel in Est. is secondary: in Est. monosyllabic words, short vowels are generally not allowed. As for the the length in the forms like aasu, where the second syllable vowel was preserved, it may be caused by a leveling. Contrary to Rédei, Komi UV aʒ' 'ice-hole' doesn't belong here; it may be related to Mansi So. as, K äs 'hole, orifice' (Toivonen Affr., 135, 229).
