Etymology[edit]

From Old Irish i mbárach (tomorrow), from bárach, from Proto-Celtic *bārego- (morning) (compare Welsh bore, Cornish bore, Breton beure), perhaps from Proto-Indo-European *mr̥Hko- (compare English morning, Lithuanian mérkti (to blink, twinkle), Sanskrit मरीचि (marīci, ray of light)), from *mer- (to shimmer, shine) (compare Greek μέρα (méra, morning)), but the phonetic development would be highly irregular and unexplained.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): [əˈmˠaːɾˠəx]
