Albanian edit

Etymology 1 edit

Theoretically from Proto-Albanian *kākta, of uncertain origin; potentially akin to Lithuanian koktùs (disgusting) via Proto-Indo-European. An older hypothesis connects it to Ancient Greek κότος (kótos, rancor, grudge).[1]

Adverb edit

kot

  1. worthlessly
  2. in vain

Adjective edit

kot

  1. worthless
  2. pointless

Etymology 2 edit

From Proto-Albanian *kāta, from Proto-Indo-European *(s)kHtos (shade, shadow, darkness). Compare Old Irish scáth (shadow), Ancient Greek σκότος (skótos, darkness), Sanskrit छत्त्र (chattra, umbrella), English shadow.[2]

Noun edit

kot m

  1. darkness

Dutch edit

Etymology edit

From Middle Dutch cot, cote, from Old Dutch [Term?] cota (in place names), kota (little house), from Proto-Germanic *kutą, *kutan (shed), probably of non-Indo-European origin, but possibly borrowed from Uralic; compare Finnish kota (hut, house) and Hungarian ház (house), both from Proto-Finno-Ugric/Proto-Uralic *kota. However, compare Dutch and English hut.[1]

Cognate to English cot, cote, German Kate.
