EtymologyEdit

A modern literary word, probably a back-formation from առապար (aṙapar) and ապառաժ (apaṙaž), as if those contain a root *ապար (*apar). The back-formation was motivated by the variant spelling առ յապարի (aṙ yapari) of the locative յառապարի (yaṙapari) found in one manuscript.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

ապար (apar)

  1. (geology) rock, layer
