Alternative formsEdit


Either a derivative of tok 'to touch', in the sense of 'dry land', or from an old substrate source, close to Hittite [script needed] ‎(tēkan), [script needed] ‎(tagnās) 'earth'. Otherwise a substrate word with Ancient Greek τόπος ‎(tópos, place), with a proto-form *tò-kʷV- or *tòw-kʷV- (compare the second part of ndërtoj). The alternative form trokë has probably been influenced by truall, plural troje "land, place"


tokë f (indefinite plural tokë, definite singular toka, definite plural tokat)

  1. land, earth, world; ground, floor
