Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *mlē(n-), from Proto-Indo-European *melh1- (to crush, grind). Cognate to Old Church Slavonic mlětь (mlětĭ, to grind).[1] Alternatively, according to Orel, from Latin molere "to grind", with the same buccalization of m before l as seen in bletë from melitta,[2] though note that others such as Demiraj also derive bletë itself from Proto-Albanian, albeit with the same shift of m to b before l nonetheless.

Verb[edit]

bluaj (first-person singular past tense blova, participle bluar)

  1. I grind
