цӕу

OssetianEdit

EtymologyEdit

According to Densusianu, from Scythian *čap- (compare Persian چپش ‎(čapiš, yearling kid)), whence also Albanian cjap, Romanian țap. But in Abaev's opinion the p → Ossetian w sound change is problematic.

NounEdit

цӕу ‎(cæw)

  1. (Iron dialect, Digor dialect) goat (uncastrated)
