ἁμο-

ἁμο- in οὑδαμός etc.
Grammatical information: indef. pronominal stem
Meaning: `some, someone, somebody'
Other forms: Also in ἁμοῦ, ἁμῆ, ἁμοῖ, ἁμωσ-γέ-πως; also μηδαμ-
Origin: IE [Indo-European] [903] *smH-o- `some'
Etymology: Identical with Skt. sama-, Goth. sums `id'. The Greek and Germ. forms require *sm̥H-o-, to which the Skt. form can also go back; the same form is at the basis of OIr. samail, Lat. similis `like'. The relation with *sem- `one' (εἷς) is unclear.
