Reconstruction:Proto-Germanic/warjaz(Redirected from Appendix:Proto-Germanic/warjaz)
Derived from *warjaną (“to hinder, defend”).
This noun does not survive on its own in any language, but only as a suffix. This may mean that it appeared only in compounds in Proto-Germanic as well.
The compound form of this noun was conflated with *-ārijaz in many languages, eventually causing both to be treated as one.
