Хто знає етимологію слова 'спідниця'?
I was having trouble remembering the word and distinguishing it from сукня, until I looked at the possible roots 'пiд' and 'низ', both of which could imply it's worn on the lower half of the body. I was just curious whether these two prepositions do in fact figure into the etymology or the meaning of the word, or if it's just a coincidence.
Either way, I've never forgotten the word спідниця since. Maybe this tip will help someone else, too. :)
