Etymology[edit]

Ačaṙyan does not record any etymological attempts and leaves the origin open.

Ałayan derives from *րգատ ‎(*rgat), from *գրատ ‎(*grat), from Proto-Indo-European *wréh₂ds. This etymology is considered the most probable one by Martirosyan, who remarks that we may be dealing with a Mediterranean-European substrate word.

Noun[edit]

արգատ ‎(argat)

  1. superfluous branches cut off from a vine and used for kindling
