Notes IE *leig-, leiq- 'miserable, ill', cogn. with 'small' in /cognate/1326/ and 'some' in /cognate/2939/
Citation: Beekes, Robert. 2010. Etymological Dictionary of Greek. Leiden: Brill. Pages: View Could be from PIE *h₃lig–o-, if identical with Armenian ałkʻat աղքատ 'poor'. Proposed connections with Albanian lig 'angry, meager' are doubtful, since this word could equally be connected with λοιγός 'ruin'.
