Latvian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Cognate to Lithuanian bùrė (sail). Ultimately perhaps from Proto-Indo-European *bew-, *bʰew- (to swell) (whence also bozt) with a suffix -rā- whence Proto-Baltic *burā- whence the Latvian term with the initial meaning of "that which inflates." It is possible that the Lithuanian term is a borrowing from Latvian (Nieminen, Fraenkel). Of the same origin are the dialectal terms būra, būris (crowd), compare Lithuanian būrỹs (crowd), Sanskrit भूरि (bhū́ri, plentiful; numerous). [The usual meaning of būris (cage) is unrelated, this is a borrowing from Middle Low German.]

A different opinion (Pokorny, Endzelīns) is that this term is to be linked with Ancient Greek φᾶρος (phâros), φάρος (pháros, fabric, canvas) from Proto-Indo-European *bʰer- (to weave) or, according to a different opinion (Mikola, Nieminen, Fraenkel), the term is borrowed from Livonian pūŗaz (< *purri), compare Finnish purje (id.) However, no forms with p- have been recorded in Latvian dialects.

This term was introduced in the literary language (from some dialect) during the 1870s by K. Valdemārs, before that the typical term for a sail was zēģele (from Middle Dutch zegel or Middle Low German segel (sail)). Karulis assumes that bura must have been a Curonian word noting similarities with the Kursenieki (Latvian language enclaves around the Curonian Lagoon, former East Prussia) terms bur(a) and burpils "crooked or hollowed out piece of wood for sprinkling sails with water," where -pils from pilt "to bail (i.e., scoop water.)"[1]
