Notes
Citation: Beekes, Robert. 2010. Etymological Dictionary of Greek. Leiden: Brill. Pages: View Earlier etymologies connecting Gk. ὕλη with Lat. silva /lexeme/20570/ are to be rejected. If the original meaning was 'firewood', the PIE etymology may be connected to *su̯ol-h₂ from root *su̯el- 'to smoulder'.
