Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Connected with Albanian zog, perhaps also Manichaean Middle Persian zhg(zahag), Manichean Parthian zhg(zahag, offspring, progeny; child), Middle Persian zhk'(zahag), zʾhk'(zahag, child, offspring), Persian زه(zah, offspring of men or of cattle), زاق(zâq, the young of anything), Pashto [script needed](zag), Sogdian zʾk(zāk, child), which go back to Proto-Indo-European *ǵʰāgʷʰ- (Pokorny, Ačaṙyan) or *ǵʰag- (J̌ahukyan 2010) or *ǵʰāgʰu- (Olsen). Alternatively, we may be dealing with a substrate word of the shape *ǵʰāgʰ- or the like (Martirosyan).

According to Hübschmann (followed by Pokorny), Armenian is borrowed from Iranian, but in that case *զագ(*zag) was expected, as is pointed out by J̌ahukyan and Olsen.

According to Ačaṙyan, Georgian ზაქი(zaki, buffalo calf) and Classical Syriac ܙܓܐ(zagā, chicken) are from Iranian.
