Tocharian B[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From an unattested singular form *käryā-, from Proto-Tocharian *käryā-, from Proto-Indo-European *kṛd(i)yeh₂-, from *ḱḗr, whence also English heart and Old Irish cride. Compare Tocharian A kri (will).

Noun[edit]

käryāñ pl

  1. hearts.

Usage notes[edit]

The usual - word for heart is arañce; käryāñ appears to be an archaism attested in only one passage.
