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), later form 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]
