LatinEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Indo-European *h₂(e)rmos (fitting), from the root *h₂er- (to join). armentum is an independent derivation from the same root, as if from Proto-Indo-European *h₂er-mn̥-tom. Cognates include Sanskrit ऋत (ṛtá, order; right; agreement etc.) and अरम् (áram, fitting), Ancient Greek ἀραρίσκω (ararískō, to fit together) and Old Armenian արարի (arari).

Semantic development was "that what is fitted together" → "tools" → "weapons". Also related to ars, artus, rītus.

Usage notesEdit

The feminine noun arma is like other feminine nouns starting with a stressed a sound in that it takes the definite article el (normally reserved for masculine nouns) in the singular when there is no intervening adjective:

el arma

However, if an adjective intervenes between the article and the noun, the article reverts to la.
