Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

An Iranian borrowing.[1] Compare Middle Persian lʾc (rāz), Manichaean Middle Persian rʾz (rāz), Manichaean Parthian rʾz (rāz), Persian راز (râz, secret, mystery). This etymology is rejected by Hübschmann[2] and Ačaṙean[3] because of the difference in meaning, but compare Classical Syriac ܐܪܙܐ from the same Iranian source with closer meanings.
