Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *h₃er- (to move, stir, spring). Cognates include Sanskrit ऋणोति (ṛṇóti) and Latin ruō. Compare also Old Armenian յառնեմ (yaṙnem). The Epic athematic middle aorist form ὦρτο (ôrto) matches exactly with Sanskrit आर्त (ārta), the equivalent form of ऋणोति (ṛṇóti).

Pronunciation[edit]

 

Mark the vowel length of the ambiguous vowel ι by adding a macron after it if it is long, or a breve if it is short. By default, Module:grc-pronunciation assumes it is short if unmarked.
