Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Possibly from a Turkic language. Possibly related to Albanian kedh (kid), which would then render the Proto-Indo-European reconstruction as *koǵʰeh₂.

In older sources it is usually grouped with PIE *h₂eǵós (he-goat) but initial *k- does not match, or with set of Germanic cognates such a Old English hæcen (kid) and Middle Dutch hoeke, which is precluded by Winter's law.

Noun[edit]

*koza f

  1. goat

Declension[edit]

Derived terms[edit]

  • *koža (skin; leather)
