Icelandic

Etymology

From Old Norse ó-, ú-, from Proto-Germanic *un-, from Proto-Indo-European *n̥-, a prefix use of the particle *ne (not). In Icelandic this changed very early from ú- to ó-.

Cognate with Old English un- (English un-) Old Saxon un-, Dutch on-, Old High German un- (German un-, Swedish o-, Norwegian u), and Gothic 𐌿𐌽- (un-). The Indo-European root is also the source of Ancient Greek α- (a-), αν- (an-), Latin in-, and Old Irish in-.
