Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

According to Ačaṙyan and J̌ahukyan, perhaps a Semitic borrowing. Compare Akkadian [script needed] (kūšu, skin), which goes back to Sumerian [script needed] (kuš, skin). Ačaṙyan adduces also Arabic قشعه (qašʿa, dry skin), قشاعه (qašāʿa, a piece of dried up leather) and some other derivatives of the root قش (qašš, to become dry, to dry up), but according to J̌ahukyan these are not related to the Akkadian word.

Noun[edit]

  1. hide, skin, leather
