aq

  1. (chemistry) Abbreviation of aqueous solution.

Adjective[edit]

aq (not comparable)

  1. as quoted (used on a menu to indicate that the price is not listed because it varies depending on the composition of a dish (as in a charcuterie or cheese platter) or because it is particularly high)

Usage notes[edit]

  • The abbreviation mp (market price) is more common, but mp is formally only correct if the price of the ingredients changes (as for seafood), not if the price of the dish changes due to the composition changing.

Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Albanian * ̊kai, from Proto-Indo-European *kʷóy, *kʷ- (someone, who). Cognate to Old Latin quoi (which) and Latin quae. A comparative particle. From a-q (from Proto-Albanian *a(u) ki), the result of a merger of a former syntactic unit. The * ̊kai root is a potentially the plural form of the pronominal stem *kwo-, which forms indefinite, interrogative and relative pronouns. A reconstruction *kweh₂i is also possible.[1]
