This entry contains Proto-Slavic reconstructed words and roots. As such, the term(s) in this entry are not directly attested, but are hypothesized to have existed based on comparative evidence.

Proto-SlavicEdit

EtymologyEdit

Possibly from a Turkic language. Possibly related to Albanian kedh (kid), which would then render the Proto-Indo-European reconstruction as *koǵʰeh₂.

In older sources it is usually grouped with PIE *h₂eǵós (he-goat) but initial *k- does not match, or with set of Germanic cognates such a Old English hæcen (kid) and Middle Dutch hoeke, which is precluded by Winter's law.

NounEdit

*koza f

  1. goat

DeclensionEdit

Derived termsEdit
