Proto-Germanic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Pre-Germanic *ǵʰórneh₂, from Proto-Indo-European *ǵʰer- or *ǵʰern-. Probably cognate with Latin hernia, Lithuanian žarna. Beekes reconstructs the PIE root with a laryngeal however, *ǵʰerH-, in relation to Ancient Greek χορδή (khordḗ, guts, string made of gut).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

*garnō f

  1. intestines, gut
