EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Indo-Iranian (compare Avestan dvarǝm, Old Persian 𐎯𐎺𐎼𐎹𐎠 ‎(duvar-, door, gate)), from Proto-Indo-European *dʰworom ‎(enclosure, courtyard, i.e. something enclosed by the door), accusative of *dʰwor-. Cognate with Old Church Slavonic дворъ ‎(dvorŭ, court, courtyard), Latin forum ‎(forum, market-place) and Lithuanian dvãras ‎(estate). This Proto-Indo-European neuter is a derivation of the basic feminine root noun *dʰwer-, *dʰwor- ‎(door, gate) that also gave Sanskrit द्वार् ‎(dvā́r).
