EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Albanian *kṣati, from Proto-Indo-European *tḱey- (to settle). Compare Romanian sat (village, countryside), Avestan 𐬱𐬀𐬉𐬌𐬙𐬌 (šaēiti, stays, dwells), Sanskrit क्षेत्र (kṣétra, estate, residence), Ancient Greek κτίσις (ktísis, a founding, foundation, a doing, an act, a creating), Old Armenian շէն (šēn, inhabited farm, village). An alternative etymology suggests Byzantine Greek φουσσάτον (phoussáton, citadel), from Late Latin fossātum (entrenchment, place enclosed by a ditch), from Latin fossa (ditch).
