English meaning: dense
    Deutsche Übersetzung: “dicht”
    Material: Gk. δασύς “dense” : Lat. dēnsus ds.; the direct derivation from *dn̥sús does not contradict the explanation of *δάω from *dn̥sō (see above under dens-1); indeed from W. Schulze (Kl. Schr. 116 f.) the stated examples of -σ- from IE -n̥s- are absolutely not proving. On the other hand δαυλός “cover with dense vegetation” could go back to δα-υλός (: ὕλη), but δασκόν δασύ etc would barely be formed by abstraction to δά-σκιος “ (*densely) shady “ (*διά-σκιος). Meillet MSL. 22, 63 will define σ in δασύς as expressive gemination σσ (?) common Gk.-Illyr. -ks- > -ss- phonetic mutatIon. About phok. PN Δαυλίς s. WH. I 468. About Alb. dënt “make dense”, etc see under dhen-3.
    Note: Alb.Gheg dend (*den-) “make dense” common Alb. n > nd phonetic mutatIon. Lat. dēnseō, -ēre (perf. dēnsī only by Charisius Gk.-Lat. I 262, 4) “ to make thick, condense, press together “, denominative of dēnsus “dense” (*densos or *dn̥sos, event. *dénsu̯os). Hitt. dassuš (dat. sg. ta-aš-śu-u-i) ‘strong (*thick)”.
