Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

According to Ačaṙean, a borrowing from Classical Syriac ܟܠܒܐ (kalbā, dog), more precisely from its dialectal form with an -u- vowel. For the semantics compare Armenian ջրշուն (ǰršun, beaver, literally water-dog), Middle Persian [script needed] (sag ī ābīg, beaver, literally water-dog) (whence Persian سگ آبی (sag-e âbi)), Old Irish doburchú (otter, literally water-dog).
