EtymologyEdit

Hübschmann and following him Ačaṙyan derive from Classical Syriac ܣܦܣܝܪܐ(sap̄sērāʾ), which is of Iranian origin; see Persian شمشیر(šamšir) for details. J̌ahukyan accepts with a question mark. Manichaean Parthian sfsyr(safsēr, sword), unknown to these linguists, is a more probable source of origin for the Old Armenian word. For the sound change Iranian af → Old Armenian ու (u) see մանուշակ (manušak).
