Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Tocharian *w'īkän, from Proto-Indo-European *(d)wi(h₁)dḱm̥ti (cognate with Latin vīgintī, Ancient Greek εἴκοσι (eíkosi), Doric ϝείκατι (weíkati), Sanskrit विंशति (viṃśati), Avestan 𐬬𐬍𐬯𐬀𐬌𐬙𐬌(vīsaiti), Ossetian инсӕй (insæj), Armenian քսան (kʿsan), Albanian (një)zet, Welsh ugain). Compare Tocharian A wiki and Tocharian B ikäṃ, both of which seem to be from the same PIE form.
