Ancient GreekEdit

EtymologyEdit

Uncertain. Has traditionally been derived from a Proto-Indo-European *ǵʰer- (catch), cognate to χόρτος (khórtos, enclosure) and Sanskrit हरति (harati). However, the word is phonetically identical to Lithuanian žaras, and so could perhaps be from a Proto-Indo-European *ǵʰoros.
