durus

  1. conditional of durar

LatinEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Italic *dūros, from Proto-Indo-European *duh₂-ró-s (long), from *dweh₂- (far, long). Cognate with Ancient Greek δηρός (dērós, long), Sanskrit दूर (dūrá, distant, far, long), though there are semantic problems if the change "long" > "enduring" (see dūrō) is not accepted.

Alternatively, from Proto-Indo-European *deru-, *drew- (hard, fast). Cognate with Lithuanian drū́tas (firm, strong), Old English trum (trim, strong, firm), Sanskrit ध्रुव (dhruva, firm, fixed).
