AdjectiveEdit

aq (not comparable)

  1. as quoted (used on a menu to indicate that the price is not listed because it varies depending on the composition of a dish (as in a charcuterie or cheese platter) or because it is particularly high)

Usage notesEdit

  • The abbreviation mp (market price) is more common, but mp is formally only correct if the price of the ingredients changes (as for seafood), not if the price of the dish changes due to the composition changing.

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Albanian * ̊kai, from Proto-Indo-European *kwoi, *kw 'someone; who'. Cognate to Old Latin quoi (which) and Latin quae. A Comparative particle. From a-q (from Albanian a(u) ki), resulting from the merger of a former syntactic unit. Possibly, the * ̊kai root is a plural form of the pronominal stem kwo- which forms indefinite, interrogative and relative pronouns. A reconstruction *kweh2i is also possible[1].

ParticleEdit

aq (masculine adjectival i aq, feminine singular e aq, masculine plural aq, feminine plural aqa)
