Etymology

edit

From the accusative Proto-Albanian *a-ta, compound of proclitic particle a and demonstrative ta, from Proto-Indo-European *tons, accusative plural of *só m (that (one)) (compare Latin istud, English that).

Older and dialectal varieties retain ablative asish, acish, from a + Proto-Albanian *tsj(a)isu, from *ḱjoisu, locative of Proto-Indo-European *ḱís (this (one)) (compare English he).
