Ossetian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

According to Densusianu, from Scythian *čap- (compare Persian چپش (čapiš, yearling kid)), whence also Albanian cjap, Romanian țap. But in Abaev's opinion the p → Ossetian w sound change is problematic.

Noun[edit]

цӕу (cæw)

  1. (Iron dialect, Digor dialect) goat (uncastrated)
