Czech[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Slavic *kostrьcь which is from Proto-Slavic *kostra (skeleton). This probably comes from several intermingling sources: from Proto-Slavic *kostr-, *kostь (bone) and at the same time the root *kes-, which is from Proto-Indo-European *kes- (to scratch). The present Czech form kostrč was probably also influenced by the word trčet (stick out).[1] Compare kost, kostra and kostrbatý.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): [ˈkostr̩t͡ʃ]
  • Hyphenation: ko‧s‧trč

Noun[edit]
