Proto-Germanic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *ūsr- (aurochs). Cognate with Sanskrit उष्ट्र (uṣṭra, buffalo), Persian اشتر (uštur).

An alternate etymology derives from Proto-Indo-European *awǝ-, *ewǝ- (flowing water), analogous to the derivation of *uhsô. If so, then related to Old Norse úr (dampness, fine rain, drizzle), Old English ēar (sea, ocean). See *ūrą.

Noun[edit]

*ūraz m

  1. aurochs

Declension[edit]


Descendants[edit]

Many descendants are compounded with *uhsô (ox).
