EtymologyEdit

Cognate with synonymous Central Kurdish کالان(kalan), کێلان(kêlan), Zazaki kalanî, Hawrami [script needed] (kêlane).

Ačaṙyan derives from Armenian կալան (kalan).[1][2] But according to Schwartz, from Old Iranian *kārta-dāna- (literally knife-place).[3]

NounEdit

kalan (Cyrillic калан, Armenian քալան)[4][5]

  1. sheath, scabbard
    • 1857, Stepan, an Armenian employee of the American Bible Society (translator), The Gospels in Kurdish in Armenian characters, John 18:11, Constantinople, page 383:
      Շուրա խօ տիսա լը քալան տէյնը.
      Šura xō tisa lə kʿalan tēynə.
      Put up thy sword into the sheath
