Ancient Greek[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The origin is unknown. Folk-etymologically explained as πελός(pelós, dark) + ἀργός(argós, white). Has been linked with Old Armenian արագիլ(aragil). Witczak (1991) suggests that the word is a compound, with second term continuing otherwise unattested *ἁργός(*hargós), from Proto-Indo-European *sr̥ǵos(stork), akin to e.g. Proto-Germanic *sturkaz(stork).

Pronunciation[edit]

 

Mark the vowel length of the ambiguous vowel α by adding a macron after it if it is long, or a breve if it is short. By default, Module:grc-pronunciation assumes it is short if unmarked.
