English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From earlier sloggorne, slughorne, slughorn (battle cry), borrowed from Scottish Gaelic sluagh-ghairm (battle cry), from Old Irish slúag, slóg (army; (by extension) assembly, crowd) + gairm (a call, cry).[1] Slóg is derived from Proto-Celtic *slougos (army, troop), from Proto-Indo-European *slowgʰos, *slowgos (entourage); and gairm from Proto-Celtic *garman-, *garrman- (a call, shout), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *ǵeh₂r- (to call, shout). The English word is cognate with Latin garriō (to chatter, prattle), Old English caru (anxiety, care, worry; grief, sorrow).
