Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From the root եկ- (ek-), which fills part of the conjugation of գամ (gam). Inherited from Proto-Indo-European *gʷem-. The 3rd person singular aorist եկն (ekn) reflects the original root aorist *h₁é-gʷem-t. The Armenian aorist augment ե- (e-) had spread throughout the paradigm and became a part of the root. Probably related to կամ (kam).

եկ (ek

  1. (in the plural) event
    ի վերայ եկքi veray ekkʿ — accident, misfortune
  2. stranger; proselyte
