Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The origin is uncertain. Perhaps from Proto-Indo-European *h₂edos- (sort of cereal, grain) and cognate with Latin ador (coarse grain, spelt), Gothic 𐌰𐍄𐌹𐍃𐌺 (atisk, cornfield). The original meaning then is ‘grain’, from which the meaning ‘cut, section, piece, fragment’ developed secondarily. Related to հօտ (hōt) and յօտ (yōt). Compare also Hittite [script needed] (ḫattāi-, to cut).
