Word: жгу,
Near etymology: жечь, диал. инф. жечи́, жегчи́, укр. жгу, жечи́, жегчи́, жегти́, ст.-слав. жешти, жегѫ κατακαίειν, болг. жега́, жежа́ "жгу" (Младенов 165), сербохорв. жѐħи, жѐже̑м, др.-чеш. žéci, žehu, польск. żec, żgę, в.-луж. žec, žhu; праслав. *žegǫ из *gegǫ; с др. ступенью вокализма: изга́га. Относительно ь в ст.-слав., др.-русск. жьгѫ (Савв., Супр.) ср. Ляпунов 108 и сл.; Мейе -- Вайан 217.
Further etymology: Родственно лит. degù, dègti "жечь", лтш. degu, degt "гореть", др.-инд. dáhati "горит, сжигает", авест. dažaiti, алб. djek "сжигаю", аор. dogja (Г. Майер, Alb. Wb. 69), бретон. devi "сжигать" (Педерсен, Kelt. Gr. I, 108; 2, 508), греч. τέφρᾱ "зола", θεπτανός ̇ ἁπτόμενος (Гесихий), лат. favilla "горячая зола, тлеющие уголья", febris "лихорадка", ср.-ирл. daig "огонь", сюда же лит. dãgas "жар, зной, жатва", dagà "жатва", гот. dags "день"; см. Мейе, MSL 14, 334; Педерсен, Kelt. Gr. I, 108; Траутман, BSW 49; Бернекер 1, 182 и сл.; Брандт, РФВ 25, 223 и сл. Последний пытается объяснить начало слова в слав. древней ассимиляцией в 2, 3 л. ед. ч. *džedžeši, džedžetь после приставок *vъz-, *jьz-, *orz-, что неудовлетворительно в фонетическом отношении. Бернекер (там же) ищет следы стар. слав. d-в чеш. dahněti "тлеть, раскаляться, гореть" (но ср. также dachněti), а также словен. диал. dę̂gnem dę́gniti "испускать лучи". Неудовлетворительно предположение о праформе с начальным g- на основании сравнения с лтш. dzedzīte, dzedziede "пар, невспаханная нива, голое, не покрытое травой место" (Зубатый, AfslPh 16, 422 и сл.). Лтш. слово произошло из *dedziede вследствие дистантной ассимиляции (М. -- Э. I, 539); ср. русск. уго́р от горе́ть. Менее вероятно также сравнение *žegǫ с др.-инд. jañj- "светить, гореть", jañjanābhavat "пылая", др.-исл. kvekva "зажигать" у Шефтеловица (Zschr. Ind. Ir. 2, 271); о последнем см. совершенно иначе Хольтхаузен (Awn. Wb. 167); ср. также Махек, Recherches 84 и сл.
