Alternative formsEdit

Etymology 1Edit

  • Uncertain. Perhaps from the alternative, the interjection meaning 'woe', connecting the tears with oil. Another theory suggests the term vaj might have evolved from Old Albanian *vaīlë (compare the dialectal forms) and earlier *ewaila, becoming cognate with Ancient Greek *ἐλαίϝα (*elaíwa) and Old Armenian եւղ (ewł, oil) both, in turn, deriving from a Mediterranean substrate language.

NounEdit

vaj m (indefinite plural vajra, definite singular vaji, definite plural vajrat)

  1. oil

Etymology 2Edit

Possibly from Proto-Albanian *uai, from Proto-Indo-European *wai, *uai (woe!, alas!); similar words are found in several European languages. Cognate to Ancient Greek ὀά (, woe!, alas!) and Old Armenian վայ (vay, cry of pain), Latin vae, Icelandic vei, Dutch wee, English woe. Compare also Romanian vai, Serbo-Croatian авај (avaj), Italian guai. In view of a widespread secondary meaning 'to cry', one may also consider Proto-Albanian *vabja, connected with Old Church Slavonic вабимо (vabimo, being lured), Gothic 𐍅𐍉𐍀𐌾𐌰𐌽 (wōpjan, call out), Old English wēpan (weep, cry).

InterjectionEdit

vaj

  1. woe!, alas!
