Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *árˀtla; compare Latvian ar̂kls, Proto-Slavic *òrdlo. From Proto-Indo-European *h₂(e)rh₃-tlom (plough), from *h₂erh₃- (to plough). The word is equivalent to arti (plough) +‎ -klas; see for more. Cognates include Old Armenian արաւր (arawr), Old Norse arðr, Ancient Greek ἄροτρον (árotron). The Greek and Armenian terms may reflect the zero-grade, in which case the Proto-Balto-Slavic full-grade may be analogical after *arˀ- (to plough); compare ìrklas (oar).[1]
