-ուտ

Old ArmenianEdit

EtymologyEdit

Two possibilities exist. May be a variant of -ոտ ‎(-ot), derived from *հուտ ‎(*hut), an alternative form of հոտ ‎(hot). Alternatively, from supposed Proto-Indo-European *-ōd-ēs with Ancient Greek -ώδης ‎(-ṓdēs) as a cognate; compare ἀμαθώδης ‎(amathṓdēs, sandy) from ἄμαθος ‎(ámathos, sand).
