Albanian[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Latin oleum.

Noun[edit]

vaj m (indefinite plural vajra, definite singular vaji, definite plural vajrat)

  1. oil

Etymology 2[edit]

Possibly from Proto-Albanian *uai, from Proto-Indo-European *wai, *uai (woe!, alas!); similar words are found in several European languages. Cognate to Ancient Greek ὀά (, woe!, alas!) and Old Armenian վայ (vay, cry of pain), Latin vae, English woe. Compare also Romanian vai, Serbo-Croatian авај (avaj), Italian guai. In view of a widespread secondary meaning 'to cry', one may also consider Proto-Albanian *vabja, connected with Old Church Slavonic [script needed] (vabimo, being lured), Gothic [script needed] (wopjan, call out), Old English wēpan (weep, cry).
