Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Possibly borrowed from Vulgar Latin vittula, diminutive of Latin vitta (band, headband),[1] although very uncertain since the word is not attested anywhere in old manuscripts or in the Romance languages. Çabej considers it an inherited word.[2]

Noun[edit]

vetull f (indefinite plural vetulla, definite singular vetulla, definite plural vetullat)

  1. eyebrow
  2. overhang
  3. arched part of something
