Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Parthian ghrʾy-, ghrʾʾy (*gahrāy-), which is usually glossed as “to boast, exult, be proud” but is revised to “to cry loudly” by Perixanjan, who derives the word from Proto-Iranian *gāθram rāy-; compare Avestan [script needed] (gāθrō.rayant-, giving out a cry).

Verb[edit]

գարհայեմ (garhayem)

  1. to lament
