Sanskrit[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-Aryan *d(ʰ)wā́ram, from Proto-Indo-Iranian *dʰwā́ram (compare Avestan 𐬛𐬎𐬎𐬀𐬭𐬆𐬨(duuarəm), Old Persian 𐎯𐎺𐎼𐎹𐎠 (duvar-, door, gate)), from Proto-Indo-European *dʰworom (enclosure, courtyard, i.e. something enclosed by the door), accusative of *dʰwer-. Cognate with Old Church Slavonic дворъ (dvorŭ, court, courtyard), Latin forum (forum, market-place) and Lithuanian dvãras (estate). This Proto-Indo-European neuter is a derivation of the basic feminine root noun *dʰwer-, *dʰwor- (door, gate) that also gave Sanskrit द्वार् (dvā́r).
