Old ArmenianEdit

Etymology 1Edit

VerbEdit

տալ ‎(tal)

  1. infinitive of տամ(tam)
DeclensionEdit

Etymology 2Edit

From Proto-Indo-European *ǵəlōw-(sister-in-law), which must have given *ծալ(*cal), but the anlaut was modified under the influence of տագր(tagr). Cognates include Ancient Greek γάλως(gálōs), Latin glos, Old Church Slavonic зълъва(zŭlŭva) (Russian золовка(zolovka)) and perhaps Phrygian γέλαρος. Ačaṙyan accepts this etymology, but notes that Laz და(da, sister), plural და́ლეფე(dálepe), which point to a stem დალ-(dal-), “should not be forgotten”.

NounEdit

տալ ‎(tal)

  1. sister-in-law (husband's sister)
