See also: αυλή

Ancient Greek[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Most plausibly from Proto-Indo-European *h₂wes- (pass the night) (> *h₂ews- by Schwebeablaut) + *-leh₂: it has been suggested that Tocharian A olar (companion) and Tocharian B aulāre are cognate and contain the same suffix. Related to αὖλις (aûlis), ἰαύω (iaúō), ἄεσα (áesa).[1] Apparently unrelated to αὐλός (aulós).[2]
