Etymology[edit]

The original spelling is աւձիք (awjikʿ), of uncertain origin, +‎ (-kʿ).

Usually connected with Ancient Greek αὐχήν (aukhḗn, neck, throat; isthmus) and ἄμφην (ámphēn, neck). The three words may go back to Proto-Indo-European *anǵʰw- or *angʷʰ-. Alternatively, per Martirosyan's tentative suggestion, they may be borrowed from a substrate language.

  1. collar
    օձիք շապկացōjikʿ šapkacʿ ― shirt-collar
    զօձիս պատառելzōjis pataṙel ― to rend one's garments
