Etymology[edit]

Likely from Proto-Albanian *wel-estā, derived from vjel (to pluck, vintage) (from Proto-Albanian *wela), cognate to Lithuanian suvalýti (to harvest, reap) and Ancient Greek εἴλω (eílō, to shut in, press)[1]. Pokorny, on the other hand, has linked it with the Latin goddess Vesta (and her Greek equivalent Εστία), which he considers of Illyrian origin.[2]

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈvjɛʃtə/, [vjɛʃt]

Noun[edit]

vjeshtë f (indefinite plural vjeshta, definite singular vjeshta, definite plural vjeshtat)

  1. autumn, fall
  2. (archaic) October
