Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *tšel-, from Proto-Indo-European *kwel- 'to turn, twist'. Cognate to Ancient Greek πέλω ‎(pélō, to be in motion), Tocharian A köllāš ‎(bring), preterit śël, Old Norse hvel ‎(wheel). Somehow, the archaic form has generated Arbëresh Albanian qellënj with an apparently conservative q-.

Verb[edit]

sjell ‎(first-person singular past tense solla, participle sjellur)

  1. to bring, turn, dawdle
