Alternative forms[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The origin is uncertain.

Petersson connected with Proto-Germanic *puttaz ‎(pot), deriving պոյտն ‎(poytn) from Proto-Indo-European *bewd-no- or *bowd-no and the Germanic word from *bud-nó-, both from the root *bewd-, *bud- ‎(to swell). This is accepted by Pokorny and J̌ahukyan, but rejected by Ačaṙyan, who considers the Germanic to be borrowed from Medieval Latin pottus, potus ‎(pot).

Olsen puts պոյտն ‎(poytn) in her list of words of unknown origin, writing “loan or inheritance?”.

Noun[edit]

պոյտն ‎(poytn

  1. pot, earthen pot
