Etymology[edit]

Since long connected with Latin fīcus and Old Armenian թուզ (tʿuz), and considered a borrowing from a Mediterranean or Anatolian substrate source. Martirosyan reconstructs a Mediterranean *tʰuōiḱo- or *tʰū(i)ḱo- (fig). For the sense of “vulva” Martirosyan compares dialectal Armenian թուզ (tʿuz, fig; vulva) and German Feige (fig; vulva).
