EtymologyEdit

If the gloss on βρυγχός (brunkhós) is reliable, then the prenasalization points to a Pre-Greek origin. The word has been compared with Proto-Slavic *mèrža (net) and Lithuanian márška (net). Another connection has been made with μόροττον (mórotton, plaiting of bark) but it is uncertain.
