Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *h₂leh₁ur̥. Cognate with Ancient Greek ἄλευρον(áleuron, flour). Related to աղամ(ałam, to grind).

Ačaṙean explains the genitive-dative ալեր(aler) by contraction from *ալեւեր(*alewer), the supposed regular genitive-dative of r-type ալեւր(alewr). See also գիւղ(giwł).
