Romanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Possibly a substratum word, akin to or derived from Albanian magar. Another less likely theory derives it from Latin onāgrārius (from onager) through a root *onagarius, which resulted in a hypothetical *unăgariu in early Romanian, leading to un *năgar and ultimately its current state. (compare French onagrier). [1]

Noun[edit]

măgar m (plural măgarifeminine equivalent măgăriță)

  1. donkey; ass
