Serbo-CroatianEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Slavic *čȃrъ, čȃrь (Russian ча́ры (čáry), Polish czar), from Proto-Indo-European *kʷer- (to do, make, build) (Sanskrit करोति (karóti), Lithuanian kùrti). Slavic forms with und|čar- (compare ча́рати) presuppose a nominal lengthened-grade derivation, i.e. Proto-Balto-Slavic *kēr- (Lithuanian kẽras (charm, magic)). Serbo-Croatian i-stem is probably an archaism - lengthened grade is expected in PIE root nouns which yield Balto-Slavic i-stems. PIE root probably already had magical connotations, i.e. denoting remote action by magical means. First attested in the 16th century.
