Mingrelian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Georgian ერთობა ‎(ertoba).

Ačaṙean, who based on Erckert glossed Mingrelian ერთობა ‎(ertoba) with “village community, commune”, derived it from Armenian երդ ‎(erd, house, household) (pronounced IPA(key): [jɛɾtʰ]). But since the meaning “village community, commune” is not reliable or at least is not the primary one, this etymology should be discarded.

Noun[edit]

ერთობა ‎(ertoba)

  1. unity
