Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European. The initial հ- ‎(h-), found in the alternative form հագանիմ ‎(haganim) and in modern Armenian հագնել ‎(hagnel), is old and probably has an etymological value. The Proto-Indo-European root has been variously reconstructed as *h₂eu-, *h₃eu-, *h₃ou-. Cognates include Latin ex-uō ‎(undress, take off), ind-uō ‎(put on, clothe), Avestan 𐬀𐬊𐬚𐬭𐬀 ‎(aoθra, shoe), Lithuanian aũti ‎(to take off shoes), Russian обуть ‎(obutʹ) and perhaps Hittite [script needed] ‎(unu-, to adorn, decorate, lay (the table)). See also առագաստ ‎(aṙagast), օդ ‎(ōd), օթոց ‎(ōtʿocʿ).
