Can Ossetic нæл (male)be a cognate? There is no r, however. Bogorm 08:03, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Ossetian næl is indeed a cognate. Shift of /r/ to /l/ is phonetically rather trivial. --Ivan Štambuk 09:43, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
@Ivan Štambuk It's not a "trivial shift", it's a sound law: Proto-Iranian /r/ before /i/, or /rj/ > Scythian/Sarmatian/Alanic/Ossetic /l/, or /ll/ respectively, as in аллон (allon) < *áryas. So there must be a suffix involved: Proto-Iranian *nari- or *narya-. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 14:38, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

What kind of word is this Latin nerio(u)sus? What does it mean? ou is virtually non-existent in Classical Latin, so is this Old Latin? Dvorecky's dictionary has no entry for this word. The uſer hight Bogorm converſation 14:42, 5 February 2010 (UTC)
