Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Of Proto-Indo-European origin and cognate with Sanskrit अही (ahī́-, cow, female of an animal), Avestan [script?] (azī-, milking of cows and mares) and perhaps Old Irish ag (cow, cattle). In Martirosyan's view, the protoform for the Armenian may be reconstructed as *(H)h₁eǵʰ-ih₂-m, a frozen accusative (devī-inflection).

  1. bullock, ox
    եզին ագիezin agi ― mullein
    եզին աչքezin ačʿkʿ ― camomile
