Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Usually derived from Proto-Indo-European *muHtro-, from *meuH- (to make wet, wash) with Sanskrit मूत्र (mūtra, urine), Avestan [script needed] (mūθra-, excrement, filth), Middle Low German modder (silt), Proto-Balto-Slavic *mauˀras (mud), Old Armenian մօր (mōr, swamp, marsh), etc. as cognates. But Martirosyan connects մուր (mur, soot), մօր (mōr, swamp, marsh) and Proto-Balto-Slavic *mauˀras (mud) and prefers a European substrate origin for them, comparing especially Czech mour (coal dust, soot).
