IPA(key): [smɐrˈt͡ɕɵk]

Etymology 1Edit

From Proto-Slavic *smъrčьkъ. Cognate with Serbo-Croatian смр́чак, Slovene smȓček. Other languages have derivatives from Proto-Slavic *smъržь, e.g. Ukrainian сморж (smorž) (gen. sg. сморжа́ (smoržá)), also сморжі́й (smoržíj) (gen. sg. сморжія́ (smoržijá)), сморч (smorč) (gen. sg. сморча́ (smorčá)); Czech smrž; Slovak smrž; Polish smarz, also smardz; Upper Sorbian smorž, also smorža; Lower Sorbian smarž. Which form is earlier is unclear, but Vasmer suggests a possible relationship with сморга́ть (smorgátʹ, to blink).
