Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From pre-Slavic *olkъ (ell) +‎ *-ъtь (cf. dial. Bulgarian лак m (lak), ла́ко n (láko)), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *Heh₃l-. Root stem cognate with Latvian ȩ̀lks (elbow, bend), Lithuanian alkū́nė (elbow) (dial. elkū̃nė), Old Prussian alkunis (elbow), affixed with n-suffix instead. Furhter akin to Lithuanian úolektis (ell), Latvian uôlekts (ell), Old Prussian woaltis (forearm) (with ō-grade).

Outside of Balto-Slavic, closest relative is Old Armenian ուղուկ (ułuk, shank).
