Etymology edit

J̌ahukyan considers the origin uncertain.[1]

Almost certainly an Iranian borrowing: compare Middle Persian [Inscriptional Pahlavi needed] (TMH /⁠anōδ⁠/), [Book Pahlavi needed] (TME /⁠ānōh, *ānōy⁠/), 𐫀𐫗𐫇𐫆 (ʾnwẖ /⁠anōh⁠/, there), 𐫀𐫇𐫏 (ʾwy /⁠ōy⁠/, there), Parthian [script needed] (TMH /⁠ōδ⁠/), 𐫀𐫇𐫇𐫅 (ʾwwd /⁠ōδ⁠/, there).

Suffix edit

-անօր (-anōr)

  1. Found in a few adverbs indicating location.
