Etymology[edit]

Related to Ancient Greek τάρπη (tárpē, large wicker basket) and with it inherited from Proto-Indo-European *tw(e)r-p- (to grab, enclose); compare Lithuanian tverti (to seize, form), Russian творить (tvoritʹ). Alternatively, the Armenian and Greek words are borrowed from a Mediterranean substrate source.
