Ancient Greek[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The word remains without direct agreement. The comparison with Latin curvus (curved) presupposes that the Greek adjective continues a reduced grade *kʷr-to- with u coloring. As a u colored reduced grade is difficult, it is doubtful whether this comparison is valid at all. The comparison with κορώνη (korṓnē, anything curved) is also unfounded.
