LatvianEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Indo-European *reu-, *ru-, imitative of speech sounds (from which also Latvian rūkt (to roar, growl, snarl), Russian рычать (ryčatʹ, to roar, growl, snarl)) with a suffix *-nā. Cognates include Old Irish run, Gothic 𐍂𐌿𐌽𐌰 (rūna, secret, mystery) (i.e., that which is said as a secret), Old English rūn, Old Saxon rūna, Middle Low German rūne (mysterious whisper; runic character), Old Norse rýna (to talk secretly), Old English rūnian (to whisper; to plot, conspire), Old High German rūnēn, German raunen (to whisper). Latvian runa probably also meant originally “solemn speech” (maybe “mystic ritual”?); still in the 17-19th centuries it was often used to indicate some special kind of communication (e.g., runas dot “to give advice”, lit. “to give talk”, or runas diena “council meeting”, lit. “talking day”).[1]
