Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Singularized plural of *nusë, from Proto-Albanian *nutjā, from *(s)nubʰ-ti̯eh₂, from Proto-Indo-European *sneubʰ- (compare Latin nūbere ‘to marry (a man)’, Czech snoubiti ‘to woo’). For sense development, compare Greek νύφη (nýfi) ‘bride, daughter-in-law’, from Ancient Greek νύμφη (númphē) ‘bride’. Alternatively from Proto-Albanian *snutjā, from Proto-Indo-European *snu-eh2-'daughter in law', derivative of *snus-ó- (compare Latin nurus, Sanskrit स्नुषा (snuṣā), Greek νυός (nyós), Old English snoru).
