Middle ArmenianEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old Armenian *կոպիտ (*kopit), attested in the compound կոպտարանձն (koptaranjn), of unknown origin.[1] The related words in Georgian, Turkish and Azerbaijani are considered Armenian borrowings.[1][2][3][4][5] J̌ahukyan compares to Karakhanid [script needed] (koptak, coarse, rough) in Kutadgu Bilig,[6] on which see Räsänen,[7] without the Armenian. Note also Middle Armenian կոպտոն (kopton, oil cake).
