I just realized that I spelled the first morpheme incorrectly.

It should be framaž. This shouldn't really affect your ability to guess the word, but since I messed up I'll throw out a hint.

The reason I messed up is because this particular case of z > ž is a later (modern) palatalization. The environment for this palatalization did not exist previous to the sound changes resulting in the modern language.

No. Your previous comment about it coming from "from" is closer to the mark. But that had already occurred in PG and was not any of my doing.

Is it from the adverbial meaning of this word, s.th. like 'forth, forward; away, further'?
