Bulgarian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Slavic *starъ.

Pronunciation[edit]

Adjective[edit]

стар (star) (abstract noun ста́рост)

  1. old (having lived or existed for a relatively long period of time)
  2. out of date, obsolete, outdated, old-fashioned
  3. worn out (damaged and useless due to hard or continued use)
  4. hand-me-down
  5. former, previous

Usage notes[edit]

This term is seldom used comparatively (i.e. по́-стар (pó-star)) in reference to humans, as it typically bears connotations of especially old age. Largely, голя́м (goljám) is favoured over стар when comparing ages, whereas the latter is used when simply declaring the age of an elderly person.
