Russian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old East Slavic вьрвь (vĭrvĭ), from Proto-Slavic *vьrvь (deverbal of *verti), from Proto-Indo-European *wer- (to tie, string; rope) which is ultimately cognate with *wer- (to turn, bend) whence the two meanings of the verb. Compare Ukrainian вірьовка (virʹovka), Belarusian вяроўка (vjaróŭka), Old Church Slavonic връвь (vrŭvĭ). Non-Slavic cognates include Lithuanian virvė, Latvian virve, Latgalian vērve (rope, cord, line), Ancient Greek ἐρύω (erúō, I drag, pull) and Sanskrit वरत्रा (varatrā).
