DescendantsEdit

  • Middle Low German: gard

RomanianEdit

EtymologyEdit

Ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *gʰerdʰ- (to enclose, to encircle); possibly a substrate word from a Dacian *garda, akin to Albanian gardh (or borrowed from it), or more likely an early borrowing from Proto-Slavic *gȏrdъ, perhaps predating the metathesis occurring in Slavic languages (however this is uncertain as other related terms such as grădină, ogradă, îngrădi had already undergone it when borrowed from Slavic). Other suggested possibilities include a link to Proto-Germanic *gardaz. [1]

Other Indo-European cognates include English garden, yard, gird, Sanskrit गृह (gṛha, house, home), Old Church Slavonic градъ (gradŭ), Gothic 𐌲𐌰𐍂𐌳𐍃 (gards), German Garten, Danish gård and Norwegian gard, garde, gjerde.
