Whtevi[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Whtevi tret, toret, from Awen *toret, *toretə, from Proto-Lyndian *t͡soret͡sV (eight), from *t͡sore + *-t͡sV. Cognates include Modern Basque zortzi.
It is conceivable that the root *t͡sore is polymorphemic, as the similarly formed root for "seven" (*t͡saspe) seems to be, in which case the initial *-(r)t͡s- would likely correspond to the affix carrying the meaning of "five".

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (standard) IPA(key): /tɾet/
  • (Cinkeihldi) IPA(key): /tɾet/, /tret/
