Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *reð, from Proto-Indo-European *sr-ed(h) 'to whirl, bubble, stream'[1] or Proto-Indo-European *Hreǵ- ‘to flow’. Compare Latin rigāre ‘to wet’, Lithuanian rõkti, ruõkti ‘drizzle’, and also Old English rīð, rīðe (stream, brook), Middle Low German rīde (stream, brook, watercourse). Possibly related to the Illyrian deity name *Redon and the Celtic hydronym Rodanos.(Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)

Verb[edit]

rrjedh (first-person singular past tense rrodha, participle rrjedhur)

  1. to flow, stream
  2. to leak, trickle, drip
