Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Armenian *(h)imp-, from Proto-Indo-European *pimb- reflecting the reduplicated present *pi-ph₃- with analogical nasal infix of the root *peh₃-. The verb is suppletive: part of the conjugation is filled by forms of *արբանեմ (*arbanem, to drink), from the root արբ- (arb-).
