Arabic[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

Conjugation[edit]

Etymology 2[edit]

Likely through Aramaic from Akkadian 𒆠𒉈 (/kuru/, crucible, kiln, brazier; log, thick reed; short reed mat, collection of reeds), likely coined from Sumerian 𒄥 (gur, a bundle), hence a place of burning bundles of firewood or tinder. The sense of a saddle originally stems from a bundle or mat rolled and placed for cushioning; a specified sense natively coined from Akkadian 𒄀𒆤𒈣 (/kuru/, short reed mat, collection or roll of reeds; a woven thing), from Sumerian 𒄥 (gur, to twist, to wind, to turn).
