Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

ardh +‎ -je. Compare Hittite 𒄩𒅈𒁺 (ḫardu-, offspring, descendant), Old Church Slavonic родити (roditi, give birth, originate), and perhaps (Old) Armenian որդի (ordi, child, offspring). Possibly from the same root of hardhi, with a sense development similar to Proto-Germanic *stamniz meaning both ‘stem, tree stalk’ and ‘tribe, lineage’.

Noun[edit]

ardhje f (indefinite plural ardhje, definite singular ardhja, definite plural ardhjet)

  1. arrival, incoming
  2. origin, lineage
