Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

According to Ačaṙyan, from Proto-Indo-European *pl̥-m- +‎ -ուկ ‎(-uk) and cognate with Ancient Greek πόλεμος ‎(pólemos, war, battle); the primitive root աղ- ‎(ał-) is found perhaps in the reduplicated verb աղաղմաղակեմ ‎(ałałmałakem, to make noise).

On the other hand, according to Petersson and Pokorny, from the Proto-Indo-European onomatopoeic root *el-, *ol-, on which see ողբ ‎(ołb).
