Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Uralic *warᴈ, cognate with the Hungarian varjú (crow).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): [ˈʋɑris]
  • Hyphenation: va‧ris

Noun[edit]

varis

  1. hooded crow, grey crow, Corvus cornix
  2. corvid, crow (any bird of the genus Corvus)

Declension[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

Until recently carrion crow (nokivaris, which is rarely seen in Finland but common in England) was believed to be just a black variant of hooded crow or grey crow (which is common in Finland but less common in England). Therefore many dictionaries give "carrion crow" as translation for varis.
