EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Georgian-Zan *obol- ‎(orphan). Cognate with Mingrelian ომბოლი ‎(omboli).

Starostin connects it with Proto-North-Caucasian *HubV̆ and considers the comparison with Proto-Indo-European *orbho- to be problematic. Compare Avar гьобол ‎(hobol, stranger, guest).

Ačar̩ean derives from Old Armenian որբ ‎(orb).

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ɔbɔli/
  • Hyphenation: ო‧ბო‧ლი
