Persian[edit]

Persian Wikipedia has an article on:
آش
Wikipedia fa

Etymology[edit]

Perhaps from a Turkic language, see Common Turkic *aš. [1], however there seems to be an unexplained mismatch in vowel length.

Compare Azerbaijani , Bashkir аш (), Yakut ас (as).

Alternatively, inherited from Middle Persian [Term?] (/āš/), a hapax legomenon found in the Vendidad, although this word is claimed to be misread [2].

Connections with Sanskrit आश (āśa, food) are also sometimes proposed, but the correspondance would not be regular.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ʔɒːʃ/
    (file)
