Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *a-tā(s), compound of proclitic particle a and demonstrative tās, from Proto-Indo-European *téh₂es, feminine plural of *tód (that (one)) (compare Latin istud, English that).
The accusative is from Proto-Albanian *a-tā(s), from earlier *a-tā(n)s, from *téh₂ns, and older and dialectal varieties retain ablative asosh, acosh, from a + Proto-Albanian *tsjāsu, from *ḱjéh₂su, locative of Proto-Indo-European *ḱís (this (one)) (compare English he).
