Etymology 2[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *h₁erm-(poor, ill). Cognate with Hittite 𒅕𒈠𒀭(erman, sickness). Alternatively[1], from Pre-Germanic *h₃orbʰmos, with loss of -b- before -m-, from Proto-Indo-European *h₃erbʰ-; compare the Norse variant aumr, as from *arbmaz with no loss of -b-, which mirrors the dissimilation of Old Norse haustr from *harbistaz.

Adjective[edit]

*armaz

  1. poor, miserable
  2. pitiful, pitiable
Declension[edit]
