Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Probably from the stem vowel -a- + Proto-Indo-European *-k(o)- suffix. Compare -ոք ‎(-okʿ).

Suffix[edit]

-աք ‎(-akʿ)

  1. A suffix found in թանաք ‎(tʿanakʿ), սլաք ‎(slakʿ) and probably արտաքին ‎(artakʿin), արտաքս ‎(artakʿs). The -kʿ- in ներքին ‎(nerkʿin), ներքոյ ‎(nerkʿoy) is probably of the same origin.
