Etymology edit

From Proto-Albanian *dailjā, from Proto-Indo-European *dʰeh₁-l-. Compare Old English delu (teat). More at djalë. Possibly the source of the Illyrian tribe name Dalmatae. Hyllestad noted that Delme is only a metathesis away from Proto-Germanic *tamila-, as Proto-Albanian *dalma a derivative of Proto-Germanic *tamjaną[1]

delme f (plural delme)

  1. sheep
  2. ewe
