EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Hellenic *pʰérō, from Proto-Indo-European *bʰéreti. Cognates include Old English beran (English bear), Latin ferō, Sanskrit भरति (bhárati), Old Armenian բերեմ (berem), and Albanian bie.

The future paradigm οἴσω (oísō) is derived from Proto-Indo-European *h₃eyt- (to fetch). Cognates include Latin ūtor (to use).

The aorist ἤνεγκα (ḗnenka, I brought) is from Proto-Indo-European *h₂eh₂nónḱe, reduplicated perfect of *h₂neḱ- (to bring). Cognates include Old Irish ·ánaic (preterite of ·icc) and Sanskrit आनंश (ānáṃśa, I have attained) (perfect of अश्नुते (aśnuté)).
