Ancient Greek

Etymology

It has been proposed to derive from a Proto-Indo-European *h₂egʷs-ih₂-, citing cognates such as Latin ascia and a number of Germanic words, such as Old English æx (English axe). However, it could also be a Semitic borrowing; compare Akkadian 𒍏𒄩𒍣𒅔 (ḫaṣṣinnu) and Aramaic חצינא (ḥaṣīnā).

Pronunciation

  • (Classical): IPA: [akʰsínɛː]
