Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Of Proto-Indo-European origin and cognate with Sanskrit अही ‎(ahī́-, cow, female of an animal), Avestan [script needed] ‎(azī-, milking of cows and mares) and perhaps Old Irish ag ‎(cow, cattle). In Martirosyan's view, the protoform for the Armenian may be reconstructed as *(H)h₁eǵʰ-ih₂-m, a frozen accusative (devī-inflection).

    եզին ագի‎ ― ezin agi ― mullein
