Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

According to Ačaṙyan and J̌ahukyan, perhaps a Semitic borrowing. Compare Akkadian [script needed] ‎(kūšu, skin), which goes back to Sumerian [script needed] ‎(kuš, skin). Ačaṙyan adduces also Arabic قشعه ‎(qašʿa, dry skin), قشاعه ‎(qašāʿa, a piece of dried up leather) and some other derivatives of the root قش ‎(qašš, to become dry, to dry up), but according to J̌ahukyan these are not related to the Akkadian word.

Noun[edit]

կաշի ‎(kaši

  1. hide, skin, leather
