Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From a South Slavic language, compare Serbo-Croatian seno, Bulgarian сено (seno); ultimately from Proto-Slavic *sěno. The Proto-Slavic > Albanian a remains problematic; it could have been borrowed from a southeastern Slavic dialect. Yet, the anlaut remains unchanged (in older borrowings s > š) and it is geographically limited to Gheg. Compare also Polish siano for the Yat reflex.[1]

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

sanë f (definite singular sana)
