Etimoloji [ 'slAv ] (noun.) 14th century. From Middle English, from Old French sclave, from Medieval Latin sclavus (“slave”) Byzantine Greek σκλάβος Old Church Slavonic словѣнинъ, словѣне (“Slav”). Slavs were often enslaved during the early Middle Ages, hence the semantic correspondence; a similar use is in Old English wealh, originally meaning “Celt” (and origin of Welsh), but likewise extended to mean “slave”. Concerning toponyms of the type “slave”, they are very often ascribed to a presence of Slavs but sometimes this can be a para-etymology. Some linguists, for example italian Alberto Manco, connect them to a designation of the territory relevant to a linguistic systemic stage which is prior to both the result “slave”.
