Ancient Greek[edit]

Alternative forms[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Hellenic *kórwā, whence also Mycenaean Greek 𐀒𐀷 (ko-wa). In this word, (ā) shifted to η (ē) in Attic and Ionic (see Attic–Ionic vowel shift on Wikipedia) because of the preceding ϝ (w). In words like ὥρᾱ (hṓrā), ρ prevented from shifting to η, because there was no intervening ϝ (w).
