Old ArmenianEdit

EtymologyEdit

Probably from the stem vowel -a- + Proto-Indo-European *-k(o)- suffix. Compare -ոք (-okʿ).

SuffixEdit

-աք (-akʿ)

  1. A suffix found in թանաք (tʿanakʿ), սլաք (slakʿ) and probably արտաքին (artakʿin), արտաքս (artakʿs). The -kʿ- in ներքին (nerkʿin), ներքոյ (nerkʿoy) is probably of the same origin.
