LatinEdit

EtymologyEdit

From earlier nārō, for Proto-Italic *gnārāō (to make known, tell), denominal from gnārus; or less likely for Proto-Italic *gnārurāō. Ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *ǵneh₃- (to know). The /V:C/~/VCC/ vacillation is similar to, but probably a different phenomenon from, the so-called 'Littera Rule', as in Iūpiter > Iuppiter.[1]

Alternative formsEdit

PronunciationEdit

  • (Classical) IPA(key): /ˈnar.roː/, [ˈnäɾːoː]
  • (Conservative) IPA(key): /ˈnaː.roː/, [ˈnäːɾoː]
  • (Ecclesiastical) IPA(key): /ˈnar.ro/, [ˈnɑrːɔ]
  • (file)
  • Note: this word exhibits a common vacillation between long vowel and geminate consonant (perhaps associated with stress), still observed in Sardinian.

QuotationsEdit

  • Velius Longus, De Orthographia 80.8:latin.packhum.org
    Sānē in eō quod est narrāre observātum est ut ūnum 'r' scrīberēmus, quoniam venit ā 'gnārō', cui est contrārium 'ignārus'.
    Granted, in the word 'narrare' the rule is to write a single 'r', seeing as it's derived from 'gnarus' whose antonym is 'ignarus'.
