Romanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Latin clārus, from Proto-Indo-European *kelh₁- (to call, shout). Doublet of clar, which was a borrowing. Used almost always as an adverb in modern speech (compare Latin pure, adverb form of purus). The old adjective form is only found in old texts and in some expressions such as "din chiar senin" or "apă chioară" ("clear or pure water"), where it was influenced phonetically by the unrelated word chior.
