EtymologyEdit

Possibly related to Albanian kedh (kid), which would then render the Proto-Indo-European reconstruction as *koǵʰeh₂.

In older sources it is usually grouped with PIE *h₂eǵós (he-goat) but initial *k- does not match, or with set of Germanic cognates such a Old English hæcen (kid) and Middle Dutch hoeke, which is precluded by Winter's law.

NounEdit

*kozà f[1][2]

  1. goat
