Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *darkā, from Proto-Indo-European *dorkw-o-. Cognate to Ancient Greek δόρπον (dórpon, supper, dinner; evening). Has entered the declension of the fem. ā-stems. According to A. Lubotsky and M. de Vaan, considering the distribution of the term, both Greek and Albanian strongly suggest borrowings from an old Balcanic source[1].
