Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Probably from Proto-Indo-European *pau-. Latin paucus ‎(few, little), pauper ‎(poor), paulus ‎(small), parvus ‎(small), Old Armenian փոքր ‎(pʿokʿr) and Old English fēaw (English few). However only Ancient Greek φαῦλος ‎(phaûlos) has the exact meaning, suggesting that probably both words have a common substrate origin and are not related to the PIE root.
