Alternative forms[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The origin is uncertain. The older spelling is either գեւղ ‎(gewł) or գեղ ‎(geł). Perhaps from Proto-Indo-European *wel- ‎(to crowd together) with a semantic shift ‘crowd’ → ‘village’ and cognate with Ancient Greek εἰλέω ‎(eiléō, to assemble), ἁλία ‎(halía, assembly of people); the nominative would be from Proto-Indo-European *wél-ōi, the genitive գեղջ ‎(gełǰ) from Proto-Indo-European *wel-y-ós.

Noun[edit]

գիւղ ‎(giwł

  1. village; country
    գնալ, բնակել ի գիւղgnal, bnakel i giwł ― to go to or live in the country
