Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *mḗh₁n̥s(moon; month). The initial ա-(a-) is an original Armenian development due to association with ամ(am, year). The deviant genitive-dative-locative ամսեան(amsean) has been explained as an adjective formation in Proto-Indo-European *-ih₃no- with the basic meaning “monthly”.
