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.
