քեզ ‎(kʿez)

  1. you (objective form, singular, informal)

Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The stem *քե-(*kʿe-) is from Proto-Indo-European *twé. Compare Ancient Greek accusative σέ(), Sanskrit nominative त्वम्(tvám). The ending -եզ(-ez) is from the same Proto-Indo-European *-ǵʰi, *-ǵʰe particle as the (-j) in ինձ(inj), with the regular development of *ǵʰզ(z) between vowels.
