Proto-SlavicEdit

EtymologyEdit

Probably from the same root as in *česati (to scratch, comb). Akin to Old Prussian kiosi (cup).

The Slavic term also resembles Proto-Indo-Iranian *čaš- (to feed, to taste) (cf Persian چشیدن(to taste), Sanskrit चष् (caṣ, to eat)) which gave Sanskrit चषक (caṣaka, cup) and Armenian ճաշակ (čašak, drinking vessel). This similarity suggests a possible borrowing from Scythian.

NounEdit

*čàša f[1]

  1. bowl, cup, mug (vessel made out of hollowed wood)
    Synonym: *čara
