LatinEdit

EtymologyEdit

Possibly from Proto-Indo-European *kr̥tis from root *kert- (to weave, twist together), but according to Michiel de Vaan, unlikely. If so, compare Latin crassus, Sanskrit कृत् (kṛt, to spin) and, according to Michael Witzel, Sanskrit कवि (kavi, reins, ladle). The connection with Ancient Greek κύρτος (kúrtos, weel) has also been dismissed by R. S. P. Beekes.[1]
