EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Indo-Iranian *sakŕ̥t (once), from Proto-Indo-European *sm̥-kr̥t- (one time). The first component of a compound is zero-grade of *sḗm. Cognate with Avestan 𐬵𐬀𐬐𐬆𐬭𐬆𐬝(hakərət̰, once), Old Persian 𐏃𐎣𐎼𐎶𐎨𐎡𐎹 (hakaramciy, once) (whence Persian هرگز(hargez)). Proto-Indo-European *kert- (times) also the source of the Sanskrit suffix कृत्वस् (kṛ́tvas, -fold, times) and Russian крат (krat).
