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).
