Etymology[edit]

Having cognates throughout Mon-Khmer (all borrowed ?), akin to Laven /bɛː/ ("raft"), Khasi bùr (raft), Mlabri /bɛː/ ("raft"), Nyah Kur [phɛ̀ɛ] ("raft") and Lamet /pheː/ ("raft"). See also Thai แพ (pɛɛ, raft) and Chinese (bamboo raft). The sense of "cohorts" probably developed from the way bamboo stalks are tied together to make a raft.
