Serbo-Croatian[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Slavic *čuka, *čukъ. Compare Lithuanian čiùkaras (sharp rock), dialectal Bulgarian чукара (čukára) and dialectal Serbian чу̀кара (sharp rock). According to some others, the word is borrowed from pre-Slavic substratum due to the fact that it's absent in western Slavdom. However, Albanian çukë is not a vestige of Illyrian, but a borrowing from Slavic.
