PersianEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Middle Persian [script needed] (šlwʾl /šalwār/, trousers), from Proto-Iranian *šarawāra, ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *skelo- (thigh) + *wero- (to cover).

For the first part compare شل(šal, thigh) and Old Armenian շար-աւանդ (šar-awand), an Iranian borrowing; for the second part compare Old Armenian վարտիք (vartikʿ), also an Iranian borrowing.

Compare Iranian borrowings: Ancient Greek σαράβαρα (sarábara, Scythian loose trousers), σαράβαλλα (saráballa), Latin sarabala, sarabāra, Biblical Aramaic (Daniel) and Jewish Babylonian Aramaic סַרְבָּלָא(sarbālā, trousers; a type of outer garment), Classical Syriac ܫܪܒܠܐ(šarbālā, trousers), ܫܪܘܠܐ‎ du (šarwālē, leggings), Classical Mandaic ࡔࡀࡓࡅࡀࡋࡀ(šaruala, trousers), Arabic سِرْوَال(sirwāl), سِرْبَال(sirbāl), شِرْوَال(širwāl) (dialectal), شَرْوَال(šarwāl) (modern), سِرْوَل(sirwal), سِرْوِيل(sirwīl).
