Old Armenian[ännern]


The origin is Vörlaag:unk.. What follows is Matasović’s summary of opinions.

Some scholars (e.g. Meillet and Godel) take the obvious course and derive it from Proto-Indo-Europääsch masuline-feminine plural nominative case ending *-s, but the sound development of word final *-s to *-ք (*-kʿ) is not universally accepted. Other linguists assume a pronominal particle added to the bare stem, but the origin of that particle has never been explained. A recent hypothesis derives (-kʿ) from the agglutinated Proto-Indo-Europääsch *dwóh₁ (two); it would have been originally a dual marker, subsequently replacing the inherited plural. Another possibility, which is a mere speculation: the plural marker (-kʿ) can be regularly derived from *-s-wes, with the ending of the u-stems *-w-es agglutinated to the regular nominative plural marker *-s.



  1. plural nominative case marker
    շունքšunkʿ — nominative plural of շուն (šun)
  2. forming names of countries
    հայhay — an Armenian
    հայքhaykʿ — the Armenians collectively
