Persian word appears to be of common Indo-Iranian stock, not from Sanskrit vāc, but from Proto-Indo-Iranian wāč- according to Lubotsky. Also attested in Middle Persian and Avestan (identical to Sanskrit form), which renders it pretty certain.. It's tempting to link everything to Sanskrit though.. --Ivan Štambuk 00:24, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
