Etymology[edit]

From Middle English or, oor, blend of Old English ōra ‎(ore, unwrought metal) and ār ‎(brass, copper, bronze), the first a derivate of ear ‎(earth), the second from Proto-Germanic *aiz (compare Old Norse eir ‎(brass, copper), German ehern ‎(of metal, of iron), Gothic 𐌰𐌹𐌶 ‎(aiz, ore)), from Proto-Indo-European *áyos, h₂éyos. Confer Latin aes ‎(bronze, copper), Avestan ayah, Sanskrit अयस् ‎(áyas, copper, iron).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

ore ‎(countable and uncountable, plural ores)

  1. Rock that contains utilitarian materials; primarily a rock containing metals or gems which—at the time of the rock's evaluation and proposal for extraction—are able to be separated from its neighboring minerals and processed at a cost that does not exceed those materials' present-day economic values.
    • 2014 April 21, “Subtle effects”, in The Economist, volume 411, number 8884:
      Manganism has been known about since the 19th century, when miners exposed to ores containing manganese, a silvery metal, began to totter, slur their speech and behave like someone inebriated.
