Etymology[edit]

An old derivative of աղբ (ałb). The suffix -եւք (-ewkʿ) may be related to -ոյք (-oykʿ). The forms աղբիւսք (ałbiwskʿ), աղբիւս (ałbiws), աղբեւս (ałbews) were built post-classically by generalizing the accusative աղբեւս (ałbews) of աղբեւք (ałbewkʿ) and the accusative աղբիս (ałbis) of աղբիք (ałbikʿ).

Noun[edit]

աղբեւք (ałbewkʿpl 

  1. excrement, dung; muck, manure; filth
  2. dung-heap
  3. place for the reception of all filth
