Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Earlier form might have been *pnew-ma hence from *pnew-, compare πνεῦμα (pneûma, breath). A similar development p->f happened to the word ftoh from an earlier attested ptoh. Alternatively from Proto-Albanian *spHṛū-m-a, from Proto-Indo-European *(s)peys- 'to blow, breathe'.

Noun[edit]

frymë f (indefinite plural frymë, definite singular fryma, definite plural frymat)

  1. breath
  2. wind
