Word: весь,
Near etymology: вся, всё, во́все, укр. уве́сь, усе́, уся́, блр. уве́сь, др.-русск. вьсь, вься, вьсе (только один раз вин. п. ед. ч. ж. вьху; см. Хутынск. грам. XII в.), ст.-слав. вьсь, вьс, вьсе πᾶς, ὅλος, болг. се "всё (время)", сербохорв. са̏в, сва̏, све̏, словен. vès, др.-чеш. veš, ж. všě, ср. р. vše, др.-польск. wszy, wsza, wsze. Фонетически возможно только праслав. vьxъ, *vьxa, *vьxo. О форме *vьsi̯o-, вопреки Мейе (MSL 8, 291), исправившему свою ошибку в MSl 11, 8 и сл., не может быть и речи. Старая основа на -о засвидетельствована наличием ѣ в ст.-слав., др.-русск. вьсѣмъ, вьсѣми, вьсѣхъ (не -и-!). Ср. также Брандт, Сб. Миллеру 305 и сл.; Лоренц, KZ 37, 265; Гуйер, LF 30, 441 и сл. (Против, однако без веских аргументов, см. Ягич, AfslPh 22, 258).
Further etymology: Родственно лит. vìsas, лтш. viss "весь, целый", др.-прусск. wissa- "весь", далее, др.-инд. víc̨vas "каждый, весь, целый", авест., др.-перс. vīspa-. Затруднительно ввиду др.-инд. c̨; см. Уленбек, Aind. Wb. 289; Буга, РФВ 73, 341; Траутман, BSW 362 и сл.; Apr. Sprd. 464; М. -- Э. 4, 625; Эндзелин, СБЭ 69 и сл.; Мейе, Et. 239; ср. также Бругман, Total. 71.
Trubachev's comments: [Необходимо указать этимологию Микколы ("Studi baltici" З, 1933, стр. 132), доказывающую происхождение слав. vьsь, лит. vìsas "весь" от основы со знач. "размножать, выводить"; ср. лит. veĩsti "выводить", veislė̃ "выводок, род"; ср. еще аналогичное нем. all "весь": гот. alan "растить", а также лат. totus "весь": и.-е *teu- "увеличиваться, разрастаться"; см. Эрну -- Мейе3, 1232; Пизани, "Paideia", 8, No 4 -- 5, 1953, стр. 292. -- Т.]

Jh.), `transtiberinus' übersetzt, wird eher zu enont `jenseits' gehören); aksl. vъtorъ `alter, secundus' (aus *vьtorъ).

Comments: A participle form from PN *=uc̣- "to be filled, satiated" (Chech. =uz-, Bacb. =uc̣-). It is rather probable, that PN *=ac̣-i(n) 'heavy' (Chech., Ing. =eza, Bacb. =ac̣ĩ, Cheb. =azĩ, Khild. =eʒĭ etc; the pure root is preserved in Chech. =az-dan "make expensive", Bacb. =ac̣-dar "make heavy") is an Ablaut variant of the same stem.

Tsakhur: ǵac̣ɨn
Kryz: ʕac̣äd

Comment: The basic root is verbal, "to fill", cf. Lezg. ac̣u- (praet. ac̣u-na), Tab. a=c̣-, Ag. ac̣- (Bursh. ac̣i-), Rut. term. a=c̣ɨ-r, Tsakh. ǵ-a=c̣a-, Arch. ā=c̣a-, Bud. s-a=c̣-. Initial *hI- is reconstructed mainly on basis of the Kryz ʕ- (and possibly the Arch. vowel length) which, however, may be a prefix. In some languages the attributive form means also 'thick' (Tab. ac̣u, Lezg. Khl. jac̣ɨ).
