Also proposed is Ancient Greek καβάλλης (kaballēs), in turn possibly a borrowing from a Balkan or north-east European language.

Cognate to Welsh [[caballus#Patrono:Cy|caballus]],[3][1] Manx [[cabbyl#Patrono:Gv|cabbyl]],[1] Scottish Gaelic and Irish capall.[1]

NounModificar

  1. horse; nag
  2. A pack-horse, jade, hack

Usage notesModificar
