Proto-Germanic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *h₂éryeti, from *h₂erh₃-.

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

*arjaną

  1. to plow

Conjugation[edit]

The past is reduplicated; otherwise, based on the root’s shape, one would expect a class 6-type form **ōr-. The class 7 past is based on a single attested strong iarun ‘they plowed’ in Old High German; the past is weak or unattested in all other languages.
