Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Of Proto-Indo-European origin and cognate with Middle Irish múch ‎(smoke), Welsh mwg, Old English smoca (English smoke), Ancient Greek σμύχω ‎(smúkhō, burn with smoldering flame). See also մուրկ ‎(murk). According to Martirosyan the proto-form presents us with difficulties concerning the vocalic length and the velar and we may be dealing with a European substrate word *(s)m(e)u/ūK/G(ʰ)-.
