Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *śárʔkaʔ. Cognate with Lithuanian šárka and Old Prussian sarke.

The original form was *sorka, with non-etymological *-v- in some daughters introduced by analogy from *svьrčati (to whistle), possibly in order to avoid confusion with the (reflex of the) verb *sьrati (to defecate).
