Ukrainian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Inherited from Old Ukrainian вовъторъкъ (vovtork), овъторъкъ (ovtork), ultimately from Proto-Slavic *vъtorъkъ. Compare Belarusian аўто́рак (aŭtórak).

The word likely received prothetic "о" at some point, though the source of this vowel is unknown.[1]

Sometimes alternatively explained as being equivalent to въ- (vŭ-) +‎ вторъкъ (vtorŭkŭ): "(у)въ въторъкъ" → "(у)в овторок" → "(у) вовторок" → "(у) вівторок".[2], though this is much less plausible.

Pronunciation[edit]
