Albanian[edit]

Alternative forms[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *ā̆ur(V)n, close to Gothic aurahjons ‎(aurahjons, monuments, tombs).[1]. However, the etymology is problematic because the Gothic term derives from *auraz ‎(wet sand or earth, mud) which doesn't justify the Proto-Albanian form.

Noun[edit]

varr m (indefinite plural varre, definite singular varri, definite plural varret)

  1. grave
