Old Georgian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Georgian-Zan *puṭuro-. Klimov further compares Proto-Indo-European *pū̆-tro- (rotten) (with reflexes in Italic and Celtic), from the root *puH- (to stink, rot), implying a borrowing from Indo-European. He notes that a borrowing from the Latin descendant puter, putris (rotten) of that root is unlikely. The Indo-European comparison is rejected by Starostin, who derives from Proto-Kartvelian *paṭ-, *puṭ- (hollow in tree; hollow (adj.); to hollow).

According to Ačaṙean, the borrowing is from Armenian փուտ (pʿut, rottenness; rotten), another reflex of the same Proto-Indo-European root.
