Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈporo/, [ˈpo̞ro̞]
  • Rhymes: -oro
  • Syllabification: po‧ro

Etymology 1[edit]

In some way from Proto-Finno-Permic *počaw, probably borrowed from Proto-Indo-Iranian, from Proto-Indo-European *peḱu- (cattle). The regular inherited form would have been in **poto < Proto-Finnic **poto. 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.[1] Kuokkala (2018) instead posits that the Finnic words could be borrowed from Samic, where the -r- would substitute for the affricate in the Sami etymon.[2]

poro

  1. A semi-domesticated reindeer of the subspecies Rangifer tarandus tarandus
