Ety[edit]

The word serleg is very similar. Could it have been an inspiration to creating the word? Qorilla 10:14, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

The origin of serleg is unknown according to G. Zaicz. So it was not the inspiration for mérleg. The base word was mér and Ferenc Toldy added the suffix -leg which was treated at the time, by mistake, as a noun suffix. --Panda10 11:24, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
