Etymology

From Old Pomorian ez, from Proto-Balto-Slavic *eˀź(un); compare with Proto-Slavic *(j)azъ, Old Prussian as, Latvian es, Lithuanian aš (earlier eš). From Proto-Indo-European *éǵ(h₂); compare Sanskrit अहम् (aham), Ancient Greek: ἐγώ (egṓ), Proto-Germanic *ek. The initial "a" instead of "e" in modern Pomorian language is the result of an Old Prussian influence (in Western dialects it is "es" or "jes" instead).
