Etymology[edit]

From South Slavic; cf. Macedonian еж (), Serbo-Croatian је̑ж (jȇž).[1][2] Alternatively, variant eshk would be more conservative, from Proto-Albanian *etska, with devoicing from *edz-k-a, from Proto-Indo-European *h₁eǵʰis; cognate with Ancient Greek ἐχῖνος (ekhînos), Macedonian еж (), German Igel, Lithuanian ežỹs.[3]

Noun[edit]

esh m (indefinite plural eshë, definite singular eshi, definite plural eshët)

  1. (regional) hedgehog
  2. (regional, figuratively) look-alike, doppelgänger
