Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈporo/, [ˈpo̞ro̞]

Etymology 1[edit]

Likely from Proto-Finnic [Term?], from Proto-Finno-Permic *počaw, from Proto-Indo-Iranian, from Proto-Indo-European *peḱu- (cattle). Koivulehto (2007) suggests that r in place of expected t has developed by generalization from an old Northwestern dialect form *podoi, and the word was later loaned back to the more southern and eastern dialects.
