Words Beginning with “А” from Selected 19th Century Russian Dictionaries

The reader will find here part of an etymological dictionary of pre-20 Century Russian. Its defects are defined by the immediate interests of the present editor-author, who continually has had to modify the design of this work. Although for the moment this is a mere one per cent of a full dictionary, it is placed here to evaluate its acceptance. 


Composite Title Page

It is based on the works of Christian Ph. Reiff,  N. P. Makaroff; Jacob Banks; and Ivan Pavlovsky – the first two in French, then English and German, respectively.  The latter three were added as found, which accounts for the ordering of these books being neither alphabetical nor chronological. Reiff was to be the model, and when Reiff did not give an etymology for a group of related words, an effort was made to find one, the completeness of which is based on personal criteria.

A curious fact about the present work is that it was made entirely without a Russian keyboard, whether real or virtual.

By recompiling these older dictionaries, we hope to be able to serve those who study historical works, wherein the neither the vocabulary nor the spelling matches what we see today.  The English is not further defined if the item was in the American Heritage Dictionary, nor was a reconciliation always made between its etymology, and Reiff’s. Words of interest not found there were subject to a sometimes difficult Internet search.

  • Russian spelling, as found in the 18th and 19th Centuries.
  • Orthographic development can be discerned between the older and newer pairs of dictionaries cited.
  • Elucidation of some obscure German words.
  • Better odds at finding the required words than in the on-line scanned versions,
  • Improved definitions of obscure ones, using vocabulary found at least in larger English dictionaries, and where not, supplemented by information available on the Internet.
  • So as not to leave the researcher wondering about their existence, recognition of obsolete and archaic words, as well as misspellings by the authors of the works cited. If in French or German, these may have been left untranslated, either to serve as additional information – unnecessary to the main objective of this document, or because multiple meanings make it unclear to what degree these latter should be included.
  • References to sources of the 18th and 19th Centuries give context to definitions.
  • Choice in definitions, by not having limited the translation to one or two sources.
  • More definitions than in a pocket dictionary. The word count vastly exceeds the German Langenscheidt Taschenwörterbuch Russisch, and the Pocket Oxford Russian Dictionary.  The latter has 225 headwords for “A”, (not really a valid method of counting), including modern entries, abbreviations, and proper nouns.  Of all definitions, there are about 429.  To compare with the present work, we ignore proper nouns and modern definitions (some of which require, without further research, subjectivity), giving a reduction of about 93 terms, leaving 346.  This may be compared to the present 1140 entries, excluding expressions (which were counted in the preceding case.)
  • Notes of various types, including contradictory etymologies, hypotheses on word origins, vocabulary which may not be deemed acceptable in a world demanding political correctness, and observations on words which entered the Russian vocabulary on the threshold of the publication of the dictionaries consulted.
  • Page numbers for PDF-format dictionaries, to facilitate verification, e.g. for peer review. At times, the real page number may differ from the number required for the actual search, so the page number needed for the PDF browser is also shown, (occasionally, in square brackets). (This is missing in entries near the top; and it may not be valid for all .pdf viewers, in which case the user will have to adapt the information to the situation at hand.)
  • Differences of opinion about accentuation given – underlined accented vowels are less intrusive.

A Note on the Formatting of this Document

Some years back, it was discovered that it was not a good idea to have an excess of symbols, abbreviations, and meaningless words (from the point of view of a page supposedly written in a single language, and as interpreted by this writer).  There is no way of getting around these limitations in writing a dictionary, but what may seem to be inconsistencies to the reader (in referencing the dictionaries used) may perhaps help get around the problem.  A certain dearth of symbols may also help. The final choice may not work with older computers, but complies with the author’s Window’s XP Pro, with Chrome Version 39.0.2171.71 m.

Originally, this was written with a number of footnotes.  In a document of this length, these would have been unwieldy, so all references have been placed together with the item under translation.  Ideally, some of the material should be written in smaller text, but this is apparently a punishable action by the companies which would index this page, so the quality of the presentation has been sacrificed in the hope of getting this page visible in the shortest possible period of time.

The text was written without putting capital letters on the words defined, thus conforming with modern Russian usage.  A few exceptions have been made where it seems the writer’s discretion may be permitted.

Browser results for the italicized version of ѣ are unsatisfactory. There should be no Arabic and Hebrew words in reverse, but sometimes some automatic reformatting seems to take place, which does not match the text which was uploaded. Improvements will be made when the author is aware of their necessity.

Limitations of the Original Documents

The originals may be perused on line, or downloaded, but they have two major defects: the Russian alphabet used is more complex than the current one, and the optical character recognition leaves a lot to be desired, as can be surmised from the name of the online file to Reiff’s first volume, (later, a different copy had the more reasonable label, Dictionnaire_éthymologique_de_la_langue.pdf):


Here is the literal copy of the French title as seen through optical character recognition:


This has only one or two errors, depending on how they are counted, but in the second instance, we obtain:



For Russian, the results are even worse.  First, a relatively minor misreading: for СЛОВАРЬ, we have found CJIOBAPL.  This writer’s eyesight, on a computer rendering the text in Times New Roman, tricked him into thinking that the “Л” was correctly copied, but it is in fact a “J” plus “I”, thus: “JI” The letters seemed to be Cyrillic, but they were not.

Should the reader be looking for whatever this word represented, it would be better to find a hard-copy:


Excepting changes in meanings of words,  the German text also has two defects for the modern reader: it is written in fraktur, a type-face little-known nowadays, and the spelling has been officially modified twice since then.

Furthermore, the Reiff and Makaroff texts abound in characters made illegible through an excess of inking, and sometimes, our sources do not show the complete word.

Even some of the entries in English have such unusual spellings, that it has been decided to include them, lest anyone be curious about these lexical oddities.

It is recommended that words not found through “search” be looked for using  the index provided, or  with the slider of the web page.

It is to be remembered that spelling conventions at the time of the writing of the cited works were not what they are now.  A final hard sign is no longer used, while the letter “i” has been replaced in modern times by “и”.  Where a successful search can be made, it should be done on the basis of the modern spelling, but inconsistencies between the dictionaries, may cause the same herein.  Here, modified Gr.  “theta”, Θ, is found under  Ф. [See the following.]

A Note on the Alphabetical Order

While there is a certain logic in Reiff´s classification of words under what are unclearly marked headwords, the reader, especially in the case of optical-character recognition errors – not to mention those of the present author – it has been felt convenient to apply the criteria of strict alphabetical order.  However, in the case of obsolete letters, і may inconsistently take precedemce over its modern equivalent, which it should follow; ѣ may take the same action with respect to Е, (from Item 000740 on, the correct order is respected – the italic version should look like љ, but no way has been found to have the required letter from just looking like the purely italicized version of ѣ). Furthermore, note usage of Ѳ for ф; Ѵ in the last position; and letters which represented Greek equivalents – Ѯ, Ѱ – are under their modern transcriptions. If these letters have not been shown correctly on the reader’s computer, it would be necessary to install Arial Unicode MS, if the machine is capable of reading Unicode at all. No other option has been found to work.

Church Slavonic vocabulary has not been modernized, it would have been oxymoronic to do so.

The reader’s indulgence is requested in the case of any inconsistencies and errors – if this work is in any way an improvement over the originals, a small contribution has been made to researchers, and writers who would like to include a by-gone flavour to their creations. As even the source documents have errors, these latter, of course, may have been unwittingly passed on.

Criteria for, and Method of Inclusion

Excepting illegible items and most proper nouns and their associated adjectives, all items in the four sources are included, with translations of the French and German given according to the present author’s confidence that the current meanings concur with those of the 19th Century.  In case of doubt, the French or German is left untranslated.  When such amphibolous entries are encountered, they are indicated by various types of editing.  This compiler’s own contributions – excepting his translations – are given in brace brackets.

It is to be noted that Pavlovsky ignored those adverbs which have meanings which are direct adverbial clones of the adjective, i.e., the meaning of “rapidly” is readily understood from the definition of “rapid”, but the synonymous adverb “fast” has multiple meanings,  Since German adverbs are visually the same as the adjective, the problem becomes more pronounced.

As the work slowly progressed, it was decided to separate the sources of the definitions of used by a double vertical line, giving Reiff in the 1st instance, Makaroff in the 2nd, Banks in the 3rd, and Pavlovsky in the final part.  This simplified the task of showing whether a particular source had defined the word. A modified system was employed later on – the reason being to improve the standing of this work in search engines, which punish an excess of repetitive symbols.  Missing entries are indicated by “—“.

When the field of usage, such as music or botany should be apparent, such information, as a rule, is not noted.

An effort was made to show the vowelling of Arabic and Hebrew; as well as to transcribe the original Greek correctly, but this may not always have been possible. Such vowelling is only to be expected when found in Reiff.

In order to preserve the original numbering, some duplicate errors which could not be replaced with a common word in the correct alphabetical order were replaced with entries from the dictionary abbreviated ТС.

It has been observed that there may be some additional problems with numbering once Reiff gives etymology for words on this page in his subsequent pages.  Nevertheless, it is expected that in the majority of the cases presented, the word will already be here, and the only thing that will need to be done is to give Reiff credit for its inclusion.

A Note on Internet Sources

As excessive linking is punished, most of the time the Internet sources used are written in a form to prevent undesirable actions against the author.  It should be possible, however, to copy the name of any web page into Google Chrome, which would supply, automatically, missing http and www data. This may work poorly, or not at all, on other browsers.

A Note on the Etymology

Compiling this dictionary was taking much longer than expected, and the objective of a perhaps excessive thoroughness had to be sacrificed.  For this reason, the etymologies avoid discussion of Greek and Latin prefixes; and common suffixes such as –logy and –sophy are omitted, as most readers would be familiar with them already. The same is true for some common words.  Reiff’s derivatives are expanded when this researcher felt a special curiosity with regard to the roots.  In that event, when at least two sources did not agree on the etymology given, it is hoped that the contempory source used, is quoted within the context of “fair usage”, for the reader has the right to know about the differences of opinion arising among the various authorities, and should not have been lulled into thinking that whatever author was at hand, was transmitting established facts.  As one learns in a course on logic, the appeal to authority is a fallacy.  For this reason, what the etymologists have to say are necessarily opinions, often qualified by their own use of words such as “possibly”, “probably”, and “origin unknown”.  Greek etymologies not found in Reiff were checked in Liddell and Scott’s Dictionary; Arabic, primarily in the author’s Langenscheidt, Larousse, and Herder’s dictionaries.  An occasional glimpse may have been made into a Turkish or Persian dictionary written in Arabic script.

Furthermore, when Reiff’s etymological explanation did not seem correct or adequate, or when it was missing, steps were taken to find one.  The depth to which this was taken may vary. Words that go beyond Arabic, Greek, Hebrew, or Latin in their non-Indo-European roots, were only written in Latinized form; otherwise, a correct rendering of those 4 languages was of interest to this writer.  Use of the character map of the foreign alphabets was cumbersome, but gave this writer a new skill.

Many Slavonic words were found in Pavlovsky’s Dictionary – after some doubt, it was decided that these words should be included in the present compilation, because the Russian universities of the time emphasized religious teachings over the West’s Enlightenment-influenced curriculum  (Changes in Educational Ideology and Format: 18th to 20th Century Practices, <http:**sites.bu.edu/revolutionaryrussia/student-research/griffin-monahan/>  Acc. 20170224).  This language would thus be used in writings, in the same way that Latin was often found in English writing, especially in footnotes – a practice which may be fading, yet remains in our spoken ergos, ad libs,  et cetera.  On the other hand, Pavlovsky included some expressions which were so literal in translation, that their inclusion would have added needlessly to the length of this compilation.

An Updated Etymological Dictionary of 19th Century Russian

Letter А

. .
А: A. Greek. –, letter alpha.

А: —–, —-, [No etymology given for this conjunction meaning “but”. Suspected simplification of the o.-i. aparám, “in contrast”; shortened to aber (but) in Gr. (Wo?). D7 gives aber as a comparative, related to ab (off, away), hence to the root apo-. {A similar process may be postulated for the Russian by the following: [1], similar to the preceding case, apocope of everything after the “a”; [2] There is a case, where AHD and DRL put shared roots for Sanskrit ava: off, down, under au-3 and au II respectively. The former includes Old Russian u, meaning “away”.]

аангичъ, m.,∀: species of duck found in Kamchatka: anas hiemalis, P: савка.

“Polar Duck” in Индоевропейский словарь с ностратическ этимологиями, Volume 1 Арон Долгопольский, Litres, 12 ene. 2017. {Russian e-publisher}. books.google.com/books?id=KmqPCgAAQBAJ&pg=PA400&lpg=PA400&dq=anas+hiemalis . Further information: a species of Pochard, considered rare, but perhaps oft confused with the Common White-eyed Duck. Found im Kamchatka in 1825, but apparently not seen there since (as of the source written about 1896). Almost nothing to report about its summer status. It appears to have been found in Kamchatka in 1825 by Kittlitz; John Charles Phillips, A Natural History of the Ducks: Plectropterinae, Dendrocygninae, Anatinae (in part) (1 v.), [New York, Dover, 1986, reprint of a 1922 book], p. 211; books.google.com/books?id=8mP16bsYCJEC&pg=PA211, acc. 20170528.

{Transcription of the reconstructed root, because of special characters, is not possible (later found at #809, in ADN, p. 775), but it inolves Pokorny’s I.-O. root anət-. It may be presumed that there is a relationship between Аангичъ, Lat. anas, anatis, and Sp. ánade, all meaning “duck”. More obvious is Lat. anser (goose), where the “s” substitutes the guttural “k” of the centum languages, here expressed with the Cyrillic “Г”. The entries seen refer mainly to fowl: ducks, geese, partridges, and ptarmigans. The I. – O. root root for Gr. “duck”, Ente, D7, confirmed by AHD, is anət– (duck). Neither D7 nor Wo? connect anas to anser, Wiktionary does, but gives no reasons. Goose’s root, in AHD, is ghans-, which claims that anser is a derivative. If the “gh” can be dropped, as it was in this case, the rest of the Anseriformes – the Anatidae – find their etymological accomodation. Cf. Old Norse words ending in “r”, but not the case in the other Germanic languages: bakkr, Gr. Bach, British beck (small brook); the word for tree, bađmr, Gr. Baum, En. related word “beam”; and the related words “dwarf”, Gr. Zwerg, and Old Norse dvergr, as English “boat”, Gr. Boot, Old Norse bátr. (Words selected from Wo?, or more to the point, to show how ar- words are derived from as-, to burn, glow, e.g. arson, arid, ara (altar), i.e. how anas (“s” ending) becomes anser.

а, f., ≠R:. ‘aba; عباءة “coarse white sheet (or cloth) with which the Orientals make their cloaks for proteccion against the rain.”; Ar.

aбажуръ, m., нпм: lamp-shade (ALX). Fr.: abat-jour, ТСЖ, p. 1, [72]: “slanted wall for a window …”, i.e., skylight.

азъ, m., нпм: Persian coin, 20 kopecks. {abas (нпм), singular form of aбасы.}

ака, f.,∀: abacus. Gr.: αβαξ, same root, Gr.: der Abakus. Fr.: abaque. Sp.: ábaco. AH gives the root as Hebrew ābhāq, ,אָבק ,.

——-:: Four interjections before the following word are omitted, 2, self-evident, the other 2 placed in correct alphabetical order, not included in word count.

абасы, m. pl., ≠mp: R: Persian coin worth 25 kopecks or centimes, (ADW: 20 cents); B: abassi; ADW: abassi[s]; Persian, Not included in word count. [The transcription seems to be the same as the Ar. for “Abasside”.]

аббатисса, f., нпм: Abbess; Fr. Abbesse, Sp.: abadesa; Aramaic, abba: father, אָב.

аббатскіи, нпм: abbatial; Aramaic, abba: father.

000010 аббатство, n., нпм: abbey; abbacy, monastery; Aramaic, abba: father.

аббать, m.,∀: abbot from Hebrew, ab: father [Aramaic: RAE, abba, father]

абдикація, нпм: abdication [Latin, ab + dicere from i.-e. deik– (AHD, DRL, to show {sometimes “to show by saying”, so the German absagen for “abdicate” parallels the Latin forms}

абевега, m., ≠mp: ABC (A, B, C), first elements of an art or science.

aбвелъмосха, f., P: hibiscus grains.

aбелъмосхъ, aбелъмошусъ, aбелъмошъ, m., P: hibiscus, abelmoschus, item not included in word count.

абецадю, n, R: 1st 4 notes of the musical scale; Polish, abecadło.

абeppація: aberration (in optics or astronomy). [Latin ab + errare. AHD and DRL agree on a root “ers-“, but have diverging views on whether this is Indo-European or Germanic. We believe DRL to be wrong, and that it should have put its ers- under its er-, thus the two sources would agree that the root is about “being in motion”]

абіе, Sl, B: soon, immediately.

абинный, adj., ≠mp: made of the cloth known as aba, used by the Arabs; of coarse cloth used for cloaks (defntn. by Banks) [P: see: Аба]

аблегатъ, m., ≠pr: ablegate, Fr. Ablégat, Sp.: ablegado {Latin, ab + legare: AHD and DRL agree on a root leg-, but the latter divides it into 2 different roots, specifying Latin or Latin with Greek (Agreement exists on a second variation). Broadly speaking, we agree that the original meaning has to do with collecting, making possible the connection of the divergent claims for lex and logos. The former comes to be a “collection of laws” while the latter can end up in a “treasury of words [thesaurus]. German makes a distinction of such a collection with a plural Wörter, while the words strung together meaningfully are Worter.}

000020 абонементъ, m., нпм: subscription; Fr. from Low Latin: bonna: limit. D7 gives limit through Old French, while Wo? and RAE suggest Fr. bon < Latin: bonus < : deu– in AHD, dwenos-, Latin of obscure origin in DRL. {No reason is seen for any connection to the latter. The Old French words bosne, bodne suggest borderstone or goal. We can reduce this to modern Fr. borne for the same O. Fr. words, the English translations suggest the word “post” , which is the prefixed form of sta– (AHD: to stand, DRL limits this to “stand upright”. A derivative which could then be related to the Old French is Spanish obstáculo: obstacle – in effect a “limit”. AHD and DRL agree on the root of the Sp. word, which, in its meaning as “limit”, as in the Low Latin etymology originally given under this definition. Bon can be compared to a Br. type of pronunciation of borne, cf. the “r” infix in Old Norwegian discussed under “Polar Duck”, above.}

абонентъ, m.,∀: subscriber. For the etymology, see 000020

абониментъ, m., ≠R: subscription. Не въ счётъ абонимента : subscription suspended.

абонированіе и абонировка, m., ≠br: The action of subscribing. {prepayment: (IvP)} see 000020

абонировать,∀: subscribe, + P: prepay, accented абонировать; see 000020.

абонироваться, P: to take out a subscription.

абордажный, adj.,∀: Boarding (sense of meaning and root given below).

0000025 абордажъ, m.,∀: boarding {act of war} – the moment in which two enemy ships make use of the grappling hooks. From Fr., aborder {Sources disagree, bher– or bherd-, place where one boards, or “to cut”. D7 suggest Germanic roots only, Wo? agrees, but suggests a related Old Slavic word, brazda, meaning furrow: *borzdà” furrow in EDS. More productive in the same source is *urt-: A cognate outside Balto-Slavic is Lat. versus m. ‘furrow, row, line’}. The former Slavic word, is traceable to Latin wer-, which gives us Russian verst, from a Baltic-Slavic root meaning the same as the Indo-European one, found in verse, divert, transverse. From the latter word, there is the suggestion of the oblong beam used transversally. Also notable is how the ideas of line, row, or furrow may be represented as [floor]boards or a verse:





The connection between Lith. Varstas and borzdà is not made in EDS, nor does it postulate an I.-E. root for the latter, but applying common transformations, it does not seem impossible to see a nexus:



of the form


Here we have used the Russian equivalent of “V” for its appearance as “B”, vowels are dashes, we use the Russian equivalent for “r”, and the “z” which is pronounced “s” in front of “T”, which happens to be the pronunciation of a final “d”.

абордажный, adj.,∀: boarding. {nautical meaning, etymology in previous entry.}

абордировать: to board {nautical meaning, etymology 2nd entry above.}

аборигены, m. pl., adj., ≠br: aboriginal, aborigine; {Latin: AHD, Aborigenes, a Latium-dwelling pre-Roman tribe; only ab + origene through folk etymology}.

абрикосовый –косный, adj., ∀; P, (2nd word): apricot; P: of apricot(s), {e.g. cf. apricot tree vs. apricot liqueur.}

000030 абрикосъ, m.,∀: apricot. Gr. Abrikose

{Incorrect: Wo? gives Gr. Aprikose to Dutch abrikoos and other words originating in the same Latin root as for precocious, literally meaning pre-cooked, but extended to early-ripened, Latin from Greek, and to Arabic al + barquuq: برقوق, colloquial for apricot, and related to Latin apricus, sunny.

Godwit, of unknown origin (AHD), has some coincidental elements with авдотька, taking ав as авва, in its meaning of God, and a remote CvC similiarity between дот and “wit”. Allowing for any vowel to equal any other vowel, we get a 50 % correspondence. Perhaps we have a certain time of reduplication, ав as in avis, and дот as in Gr. Dotter, yolk. By coincidence, дот is a Russian acronym meaning “machine-gun nest”, thus keeping the idea of “bird”. AHD gives Lat. avis and “egg” under avi-, DRL, in our opinion, avoids connecting aw- of bird to its ow- of egg, while EDP cites Pokorny for aw-, awi-, awei, and ow-, owo, aywo-, owyo. [p. 43]. PkP, under au̯ei- (ǝu̯ei-?) (*hekʷei-), separate from ō(u̯)i̯-om, “Ei”, d. h. “das zum Vogel gehörige”, the former on pp. 219-220; the latter: pp. 2272-3, [search: same page no.] A non-sophisticated proof that AHD is correct is to note that the Gr. for “egg”, minus its capitalization, ei, is part of the roots awei, ǝu̯ei-? and *hekʷei-.

000110 агрономическій, –ая, ое, ∀: agronomic, agronomical.

агрономія, f.,∀: agronomy; Gk. ἀγρός + νόμος < AHD field + law.

{A secondary meaning of νόμος is, by coincidence, field. How do we know that we do not refer to fields of study, the field of fields (agriculture), the field of stars? One of the very definitions of “field” is subject of academic interest. German translations of the words agronomy and astronomy are literally knowledge (or science) of agriculture, of stars. The word science comes from a Latin word meaning “to know”. There exist pairs of words, astronomy / astrology, and agronomy /agrology. W9 has the word astronomy predating astrology by a century, which is not what one would expect for the more serious science,, but, following their definition of –nomy to “nimble”, we see that it gives the etymology of the latter as both of the meanings of νόμος., giving “pasture” for field. Ultimately, even the AHD gives the same I.-O. root for both words: nem-, which agrees with DLR This argument is made because lex and –logy would seem closer to “law”, in spite of the pretensions of astrologers to know more than astronomers. Twelve signs of the Zodiac, with an interpretation for each one, each day of the year, gives 4380 “laws” per year, something with which no astronomer could compete!}

All concepts expressed eventually lead back to “paradise”, viz. рай, “paradise [apple], and through the translation from Russian on dic.academic.ru/dic.nsf/dic_fwords/1941/АДАМОВА, we get the banana-type plantain, i.e. Musa paradisiaca, but the words citrus, apple, and fig suggest more evidence is needed. Wikipedia, under apple, gives malus malus pumila as a synonym of malus paradisiaca. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a banana was seen in the article on web-site:

pishchevarenie.ru/pancreas/dieta/banany-i-podzheludochnaya-zheleza.html, acc.: 20170219.

Another Wikipedia article advises that this should not be confused with grapefruit. This is true, based on the following text: “La plupart des botanistes ont confondu la pomme d’Adam avec le pompolmoes ou pampelmous, et les ont réunis tous les deux sous le nom de citrus decumanum.” [p. 140]. …Son écorce extérieure est lisse comme dans l’orange, … dans la maturité d’un jaune très pâle: elle es mince et marquée en quelques endroits par de légères gerçure comme si elle eût été mordue; circonstance qui lui a fait donner le nom de pomme d’Adam… [p. 142, Giorgio Gallesio, Traité du Citrus, Paris: Fantin, 1829, books.google.com/books?id=D1b5X0uk31QC] (Citrus decumanum was originally known as shaddock, cf. AHD, which correctly gives the alternate name pampelmous, not pomelo, although under this latter term, gives grapefruit, such as in this writer’s Spanish vocabulary. Appleton’s New Cuyas [English-Spanish, etc.] Dictionary translated both “grapefruit” and “pomelo” (Wikipedia’s word) into Spanish as “toronja” and is thus imprecise.

Wo? relates this to the corvette, which AHD defines as a light warship, a term leading back to the idea contained in the Gk. term just mentioned. D7 professes ignorance on “corvette”, but connects it with “corf”, coming from Dutch, and then again connected with Korb through the common meaning of basket, a container, a vessel. Strangely, none of this author’s sources connect Lat. corbis to corbita, a type of ship < DIL, LEL specifically gives a 2nd definition of “corvette” for corbita; LSD does not.

адмиральша, f., ≠R: admiral’s wife

адовъ, –ва, во: adj., ≠pr: hellish, infernal. Perhaps I-O root dheu-, AHD gives an interesting set of words here, the most apt being *dhwes-, suffixed *th(w)es-os-, smoke, theion, θήι̃ον sulfur, brimstone (item 13) known symbols of hell. Other derivatives with the idea of smoke are found under the same entry. One of these, dove, seemingly so named because of its smoky colour, closely matches in appearance, if not in meaning, the Russian word. The same I-O root can contain the idea of vapour. In Hebr., a translation of mist or vapour is אֵד, suffixed form אֵדֽוֹ. The next entry in LHE is the verb meaning, to cause to languish, to grieve: ādăv, אָדַֽב, which gives a close fit again, if only by coincidence, hell, the place where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth: Luke 13.28, Matthew 13.42. Further thought leads to the Sp. adobe, which has two separate meanings, and the same number of Arab roots. The form of the word we know in Engl. is Ar. aṭ-ṭub, الطُب, and suggests the kiln in which these bricks are fired, a “hell”. While searching for this, the author found an Egyptian word, aṭ-ṭaabeeya, الطابية, meaning dungeon., another form of hell. The other form in RAE, aḍ-ḍabba, (bolt, latch), meaning irons put on the feet of a criminal, related LAD entry, ḍab, ضب, lock up, a root including meanings to keep quiet, be fastened (to the ground), with derivatives meaning fog and vapor, thus there are shared meanings with the I-O. root. Cf. Turkish عذاب, ‘azaab, pain, punishment, agony; torments of hell.

адозданный –ая, ое, adj., Sl. P: created in Hell {in der Hölle erschaffen [sic] – The etymology would be the same as in the previous, + a derived form of дать. The translation seems dubious, perhaps it should be “created Hell”, using the German perfect verb tense, hat der Hölle erschaffen, allowing even for “had —[somebody or something]— created in Hell”, hat … in der Hölle erschaffen. It would be necessary to see the full text to know the correct sense of this expression.}.

A grave misreading as Adoniszeit merits its inclusion, as the person here described may well have participated in such festivities: “Wer kann von sich sagen: Sic transit gloria mundi? Ein etwas antiker Hagestolz, dem in seiner Adoniszeit kein Mädchen schön und brav genug war, und ein belletristischer Scandalist, dessen Schwanke un Ränke nach zehn Jahren nicht mehr interessieren.”: The quote is from a volume edited by Strauß, 1846, Der Wanderer, books.google.com/books?id=9BlMAAAAcAAJ, p. 1206.

адъ, m.,∀: hell, Hades, inferno; R: any intolerable stay (sojourn); Gk.: Hades: ἅδης, {ἅιδης}, a probable root in AHD, weid-, to see, with the Greek hell “probably” meaning something like “the invisible”.

азартъ, m., ∀.: hazard, chance, risk; / fury, irritability (нпм’s only idea, but both R and нпм converge in modern meanings; the following expression justifies the idea of anger}: вь азартѣ либо сдѣлать: to act in a moment of anger; It., R: azzardo; OxF: probable Ar. origin; AHD: Ar.: yasara (he played at dice { يسډر} {Not a meaning which finds contemporary prominence, varied pronunciations of this basic form translate as “to be easy” and give the idea of “left” (as opposed to “right”). According to FCH, which mentions no dice, there was a pre-Islamic game of chance called maysir, so more correctly, “he played maysir”, with an extended meaning, in a different form, “he played a game of chance”. The same root is found in the name of Yasser Arafat. Its opposite is (following the above model from AHD) yamana, “he came from the right”, with more propitious meanings for gamblers, such as blessed, be a good sign, luck, happiness. The country Yemen is of this root, with an additional name in Spanish, Arabia Feliz, the prior Latin name being Arabia Felix, used in the title of an 1859 book by Sir Robert Lambert Playfair, A History of Arabia Felix Or Yemen, from the Commencement of the Christian Era to the Present Time: Including an Account of the British Settlement of Aden, books.google.com/books?id=i0oOAAAAQAAJ.

‡ By false anology from the 1st part of the unvowelled name of God, יהוה, i.e. יה, the same pronunciation (to English ears) can be mistakenly read for what was, in unvowelled Hebrew text, a form of an ancient verb, “to be, to exist”, rendered in some Bibles as “I am who I am”, Exodus 3: 14, or, שמות, יד, ג, cf. William L. Roy, A Complete Hebrew and English Critical and Pronouncing Dictionary, 2nd Ed., New York: John F. Trow & Co., 1846, p. 285 (pdf, p. 282).

айва, f.,∀: quince; also ≠br: квитъ; Tk.: aïva; آيوا, quince tree (pyrus cydonia) {DTF, 290 [326]}.

аймакъ, m., нпм: estate / enclosure, canton, borde [sic, misprint for border, or possibly “horde”] < (D); cf. ТСЖ , 6(77), with meaning [among the Russians] a collection of administrative regions, probably an equivalent to a collection of counties in the Anglo-Saxon countries; the meaning of horde may come from Dal’s definition of the word as used among the Mongolians and affiliated races, precisely a word broadly referring to their ethnic group. A third meaning, this among the Kalmucks, is that of the hereditary estate of a noble, or the owners of that property.

айръ, m. ≠R: нпм [айръ]: acore, иръ; P: сабельикъ (татарскій): calumus, sweet flag, acorus calamus; B [аиръ]: иръ: f., (acorus calamus) sweet rush [his further translations ignored for their incompatability with the two already given]. Cf. Gr. Ähre, En. ear, roots of which are ak-: sharp. Acorus has the same root, while the second component of the Latin name means, reed, from Gk: κάλαμος, I.- O. koləm- related to English “haulm”.

I.- O.: aw– [3] in DRL, cf. avis, oiseau, ostrich, avestruz: the first two meaning bird in Lat. & Fr., respectively;, the last, ostrich in Sp., no supporting evidence for the aw– root.}. It may be worth noting that Sp. preferes to use a word derived from Lat., passer, sparrow, to designate smaller birds – thus we understand why stork and ostrich are prominent in this etym. note.

‡ Etym. undetermined., yet there is a resemblance to the word “eagle”, the etym. of which goes back no further than the Lat. aquila. Suggestions: If “albatross” can be derived from a word meaning sea-eagle [infra], this latter having little in common with the former except for a hooked beak, and possibly soaring flight; at a time when vocabulary was limited, might not even a duck and an eagle have similar roots? While more apt for the eagle, upon examining the word “soar”, we get a non-expected (and unattested) etym. of ex + aurare (from Vulgar Lat.. the 2nd component from aura, air, breath, root we–, [with an Old Norse root, vængr, > “wing”]). Using ex + aura, dropping the final “a”, substituting for the 1st vowel, and making the r to l transformation, axaul is obtained. Now, dropping the “s” sound, as do some Mediterranean speakers, we have akaul-, which could give us either Аклей, or aquila. The root for sky, another Old Norse word, from a possibly common Germanic source, skewja (AHD), generates this: Dismissing the “s” as above, yet, in an attempt at its pronounciation, an initial vowel is added, cf. statio, stationis in Latin, estación in Sp. The Gr. “j” is “y”, often represented by “ll” in Sp. This gives ekewlla, > ekoula, > aquila. The reader may prefer aquila’s derivation from aqua, because it is a bird the colour of water, as claimed on p. 14 of EDP. At a minimum, duck is included. Note. Dr. Nourai admits that his source gives no evidence, but <etymonline.com/index.php?term=aquiline&allowed_in_frame=0>, accessed 20170310, gives the same information, this latter admits that the Etymologicum Magnum disagrees about the connection between water and black. No clues from ADN, no eagle derived from aqua at #122, pp. 200-1.

алафа f., B: food, salary, tribute, referencing лафа, (p. 513, [543], which, as in R, p. 491 [581], is pop. Source: Ar. naf’a, نفعة, which has the same meanings in Mod.

Using the hypothesis that the “k” is related to “f”, as, e.g., the word rough has the I.-O. root ruk-, we relate лафа directly to “luck”, and investigate its roots, without much success beyond Gr-ic sources. Nevertheless, in D7, we find a meaning in MHG, [good] (means of) sustenance, which unites B’s translation with the modern, suggesting the Ar. root for the Gr. and En. as well.)

The root of this word is Harb, حَرْب, war. {While this point of view is ties in very well with the military connotation, the more recent explanation, especially as given in AHD, is considered the correct one: there is a symbolic association in various languages between the beard and the axe, a bit more colourful than the Pokorny version, in that the former stresses patriarchal symbolism, the latter, because the iron of a hatchet stands out like a beard. (Cf. entry under bhardhā. (The word halberd is not found here.) The Ar., which translates halberd into English as lance with a head of plate, i.e., axe on a lance.

‡ The adv. redly exists in AHD, rosily, of course, requires a different interpretation; grammatically, the former would not be the answer to, “How was it painted?” Ans. “Red”, but to, e.g., “How did the embers glow?” (OxF gives the use of “redly” as “rare”, but this is an adj., then.). Cf. the question about the painting with, “How did he run?” and its ans., “Fast”; and “How do you say ‘red’ in Russian?” The last answer is neither adj. nor adverb. We suspect that the mistake here is confusing the adverb form with the short form of the adj., which are often identical, although W9 gives “in a red manner, with a red colour” as adverbial forms).

The root seems to tie in with the argument made under алчно, for the German, in that the Ar. for to gather has the word (root) لقط, l-q-T (own research), cf òlkati. The emphasis is gathering in the sense of gleaning, suggesting action taken by the hungry, the poor (Leviticus 23:22), cf.

000420 альманахъ, m.∀: almanac. нпм includes in his Fr. dictionary the word “keepsake”.

{Opinions vary greatly about the origin of this word. Oxford Concise gives it as medieval Latin of dubious etym. R gave, earlier, the opinion that it was Ar., al-minha, astronomical ephemeralities. His rendering of the Arabic, modernized, would be المنحة, but no such word was found, nor does it correspond to the translation of the word. D7 and AHD agree with the Oxford just cited, giving the Latin as almanachus. Wo? gives Greek-Egytian, almenichiaká. AHD’s version: W9, on the other hand, renders the medieval Latin as almanach, and suggests the origin is the Ar. al-manck of the same meaning. Unless the “kh” here is a different way of expressing R”s “h”, this would be a different word, also not found. [kh: خ, not ح]. RAE gives Ar. al-manāj, the equivalent in Sp. of al-manākh, adding that this comes from a Latin term, manachus, meaning “circle of the months”. This would suggest that the medieval Latin form came not from the original Latin, but circuitously, through the Arabic. What was not said is that roots such as منخ, (conforming to the “kh” version) are, in Arabic, not the roots, rather, it is an “m” prefixed root, نوخ, (n-W-Kh, oppress in DAF, with modern Arabic (al) moon-AKh as almanach, same root is given as meaning to flatten in FCH, no mention of almanac, but words related to (al)-moon-AKh as given as neo-classical, one agreeing with LDA. FC2, in an attempt at a reverse look-up, gives no similar word. Basic Arabic meanings concur with Hebrew, “place of rest”. Eliminating the last consonant, we get the idea of “part, portion”, an unsatisfactory solution, also found in an old En. word, related to a measure of weight, so, imagining part of the calendar year as equivalent to a portion of weight (?)}.

алюминій, m.. нпм: Аluminium, aluminum; Lat.: alumen.

Absence of this word in dictionaries can be explained by its very recent discovery. Not until 10 years after Reiff’s work were little globules of melted aluminum produced. Industrially, it was not made until 1856 – in Rouen, France – and it took a span of 36 years to prepare 200 tonnes. We might compare this to the 5937.5 kilograms of gold mined in New Zealand (190,000 oz.) in 1937. That would make over 200 tons in 36 years, but who would prefer, at present, Al over Au?

The data of the dictionary of M. Fasmer with the comments of O.N. Trubachev are used.» < This is a partially corrected bad machine translation (e.g. abbreviation for “verb” translated as “Ch”).

анемонъ, m.: anemone, ≠M, Gk. from Ar. . نعمان.

It is impossible to say what meaning R gave to the Ar., LDR gives “blood”, not found in other sources. Most productive was FCH, which under various spellings of the root app. “being comfortable” gives “south wind”, giving a nexus to the Gk. meaning of “wind”, (see previous item), “poppìes” – possibly ties in with “blood”. Then there is a variety of tree, the etym. ties in through “tender leaves”, not blood, it seems. R also gives an expression after the previous Ar. word شقايق النعمان, this latter more correctly matching his Ar. This is anemone in DAF, شقائق النعمان , without his implied double “n”. With the two words reversed, however, and a probable misprint suggesting that the second of these is the plural, FCH gives “poppy”, though FC2, as retranslates into Arabic as the word DAF gave for anemone. The reverse translation for “anemone” in FC2 did not, in any way, tie in with the preceding. AHD gives Gk, with a possible Semitic antecedent.

The term English term “Negro” and its German equivalent has become offensive. The word is merely given as in the original, and it is believed that the capitalization of the term gives a dignity that the spoken word is incapable of imparting. The term Negress, of this footnote, is also considered offensive to women’s groups. Again, we merely reflect the translation of the time. On the other hand, for languages that have masculine, feminine, and sometimes neuter nouns and adjectives, naming the feminine counterpart of a male is still considered normal, inclusive language, in Spanish, for example, inclusion means that the feminine must be named together with the masculine, and not that some genderless substitute is created – though social media often apply an impossible to pronounce termination reminiscent of Portuguese words, “ao”. Using the neuter form in German would cause everyone to be referred to in the diminutive — an insult to all adults, and belittling to older minors.
