Etymology[edit]

The original form cannot be reconstructed with certainty. The first part is ձու ‎(ju, egg), the ending is probably եղ ‎(, oil). For the middle part various explanations have been offered — it could be from ածեմ ‎(acem) or from the participial ending -ած ‎(-ac). If the original form is ձուաձեղ ‎(juajeł), the middle -ձ- ‎(-j-) could have been inserted due to a perseveration. Alternatively, if the original form is ձուազեղ ‎(juazeł), it can be interpreted as ձու ‎(ju, egg) +‎ -ա- ‎(-a-) +‎ զեղուլ ‎(zełul, to pour out, to spill).
