Etymology[edit]

Ačaṙyan rejects all proposals and leaves the origin open.

Ałayan derives աւետ (awet), from Proto-Indo-European *awēd- and the spelling աւէտ (awēt) from *aweid-, both from the root *awed- (to speak); compare Ancient Greek ὕδω (húdō, to tell of, to celebrate), ἀείδω (aeídō, to sing, to praise), Sanskrit वदति (vadati, to speak, say), वन्दते (vandate, to praise, celebrate), Tocharian B wätk- (to command, to order). See Pokorny for this root, without the Armenian.

Noun[edit]

  1. good news
  2. greetings (?)
