Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The origin is unknown. Ačaṙyan rejects all proposals and leaves the origin open. J̌ahukyan 1987 derives from Akkadian [script?] (dārītu(m), perpetuity, eternity), which is related to Egyptian tr (time, season) and the Semitic source of դար (dar), but in 2010 considers the connection doubtful. Olsen remarks that the word has no accepted etymology and tentatively adduces Ancient Greek δῶρον (dôron, hand's breadth, palm, as a measure of length), δάριν (dárin, span), implying a common origin for the Armenian and Greek words with a semantic development in Armenian like the one found in English “span of time”.
