Etymology[edit]

according to Martirosyan, probably of the same Proto-Indo-European origin as յ-ոլով (y-olov, many).

On the other hand, J̌ahukyan connected with աղաւնի (aławni), deriving both from Proto-Indo-European *aləu- (white, shiny) or *aləbʰ-; considered unconvincing by Martirosyan.

Noun[edit]

ալաւունք (alawunkʿpl 

  1. Pleiades
