English DescendantEdit

Is -arian perhaps a descendant of Latin -arius? If so, it would be great if the descendant were to be added to this article, and the Etymology to the English -arian. VNNS 16:53, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Done. — I.S.M.E.T.A. 11:48, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

from Basque?Edit

In Basque language, ar = "man, male" (and in Turkish er = "man, male")

ar (Basque) > -arius (Latin)?

The word, ar/er came from the Neanderthals! Böri (talk) 09:00, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

No, that's nonsense. --Ivan Štambuk (talk) 10:51, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
NOT nonsense! Böri (talk) 06:55, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
All those two have in common is a single letter. There are lots and lots of words in lots and lots of languages with lots and lots of meanings that have that same letter following a vowel. The only reason you decided these two were the ones descended from the same source is because the meaning matched. That makes your argument completely circular. Looks like nonsense to me...
