păstaie

RomanianEdit

Alternative formsEdit

  • păstare

EtymologyEdit

Most likely from Vulgar Latin *pistālia, from Late Latin pistāre < Latin pinsō (stamp, pound, crush); also hypothesized to be (due to the -aie ending) from various other possible Latin sources, including *quassitālia, from quassāre, or *pyxitālia, from pyxis. Akin to Albanian bishtajë, which is probably of Latin origin itself, and less likely a substratum term. Compare also Aromanian pãstalje.

NounEdit

  1. pod
