EtymologyEdit

From Old Irish i mbárach ‎(tomorrow), from bárach, from Proto-Celtic *bārego- ‎(morning) (compare Welsh bore, Cornish bore, Breton beure), perhaps from Proto-Indo-European *mr̥Hko- (compare English morning, Lithuanian mérkti ‎(to blink, twinkle), Sanskrit मरीचि ‎(marīci, ray of light)), from *mer- ‎(to shimmer, shine) (compare Greek μέρα ‎(méra, morning)), but the phonetic development would be highly irregular and unexplained.

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): [əˈmˠaːɾˠəx]
