Alternative forms[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The origin is uncertain. Related to Old Armenian կեչի (kečʿi, larch).

J̌ahukyan considers this a borrowing from Uralic (compare Proto-Finnic *kaski) and wonders about the path of derivation.[6][7]

Martirosyan tentatively suggests derivation from Proto-Indo-European *gʷet-yeh₂-, from *gʷet- (resin).[8]
