Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Singularized plural of *nusë, from Proto-Albanian *nutjā, from Proto-Indo-European *(s)nubʰ-ti̯eh₂, from *sneubʰ- (compare Latin nūbere (to marry (a man)), Czech snoubiti (to woo)). For sense development, compare Greek νύφη (nýfi, bride, daughter-in-law), from Ancient Greek νύμφη (númphē, bride). Alternatively from Proto-Albanian *snutjā, from Proto-Indo-European *snu-eh2- (daughter in law), derivative of *snus-ó- (compare Latin nurus, Sanskrit स्नुषा (snuṣā), Greek νυός (nyós), Old English snoru).
