Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Unclear. Possibly from Proto-Indo-European *spéḱyeti, hence Latin speciēs (appearance; quality), through Proto-Albanian *spetša. A proposed derivation from Ancient Greek φύσις (phúsis, origin) (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?) is on phonetic grounds very unlikely.

Noun[edit]

fis m (indefinite plural fise, definite singular fisi, definite plural fiset)

  1. clan, tribe, large family
