Etymology[edit]

From Arabic زُجاج(zujāj, glass), a word with several variants (in Arabic and the Semitic languages at large). The Maltese form presupposes *خُجاج (*ḵujāj). Compare the even more distorted dialectal Arabic form قُزاز(quzāz); furthermore Hebrew זכוכית(zəḵūḵīṯ) alongside זגוגית(zəḡūḡīṯ).
