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 rõki ‘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
