Japanese etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Japanese: *si
Altaic etymology: Altaic etymology
Meaning: thou (2d p. pron.)
Russian meaning: ты
Old Japanese: si
Comments: OJ si is not frequent and is sometimes hard to distinguish from the deictic / emphatic particle si; however, there are several text examples firmly identifying its function as a 2d p. pronoun. It is used parallelly with the far more frequent na, but never occurs in compounds or with suffixes -re or -no; it is thus probable that it originally functioned as the direct stem as opposed to na as the oblique stem in a suppletive paradigm. See more detailed discussion in Murayama 1950, Miller JOAL and Itabashi 1998 (pace the latter author, however, we must say that the coincidence of si 'thou' and si `deictic / emphatic pronoun and particle' must be just a coincidence).

Proto-Chukchee-Koryak: *ɣǝš, *ɣǝn(nǝ)-
Chukchee-Kamchatkan etymology: Chukchee-Kamchatkan etymology
Meaning (Rus.): личн. мест. 2sg. "ты"
Chukchee: ɣǝr, ɣǝt, ɣǝnǝ́-kǝ loc., ɣǝn- (I)
Koryak: ɣǝj, ɣǝ̀cci, ɣǝnǝk loc., ɣǝn- (I)
Palan: ɣǝ̀tte, ɣǝnǝ̀-kki loc., ɣǝn- (I)
Alutor: ɣǝ̀ttǝ, ɣǝn-
Comments: Аналогично местоимению первого лица *ɣǝm в кор. склонении ожидается косвенная основа *ɣǝnnǝ-, возможно она и из *ɣǝšnǝ-. В отличие от паланского, где loc. ɣǝnǝkki < "ɣnǝk, кор. ɣǝnǝk отражает невыпадающий первый -ǝ-, а это по фонотактике возможно только перед сочетанием.
