Etymology[edit]

From Middle Georgian წუთი (c̣uti), from Old Georgian წუთი (c̣uti). For the meaning shift, compare Old Armenian րոպէ (ropē, second; moment) and Eastern Armenian րոպե (rope, minute).

The primary meaning is partially retained in the derived term წუთიერი (c̣utieri, momentary).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /t͡sʼutʰi/
  • Hyphenation: წუ‧თი

Noun[edit]

წუთი (c̣uti) (plural წუთები)

  1. minute (one-sixtieth of an hour)
  2. (Middle Georgian) second (one-sixtieth of a minute)
