ab [Rudaki] ‘ water’, MPrs. ab [MY’, p], OPrs. ap-, Av. ap-; for the length of -a- cf. Av. afs, NP apo, OInd. (RV) NP. apas; in many Iranian languages there are suffix-derivatives of *ap-: cf. Sogd. ”p, ”ph, ”pyh, ”pwh, Afgh. obd, Wakh. yupk. Horn 1893: 1; Horn 1901: 49, 75; AIW: 325-29; Reichelt 1909: 183; Brandenstein&Mayrhofer 1964: 103; Nyberg 1964-74: 20; MacKenzie 1971: 1; Bailey 1979: 36b-37a; Xaleql 1977: 1-2; EWAia I: 81-82.

ab2 [Fird.] ‘splendour; honour, glory’; explained by Horn (1893: 1) as *a-bha-, Vbha- ‘to shine’ (EWAia II: 259-60, cf. Khot. baya ‘ray of light’, Bailey 1979: 277ab, v. bam); he also regarded it as a part of compounds abro, aftab, abmand (the latter being a desatir word! — Vullers 1855-64 I: 13); however Horn (ibid.) also gives a hint that the word could be identical to ab1 ‘water’ and compares it to Arab. ma,u ‘eau; eclat, lustre’, cf. also ma’u-l-wajti ‘honneur (lit. eau du visage)’ (Biberstein-Kazimirski 1860 II: 1169), Turk. suw ‘water’ has also the meaning ‘splendour’ (Радлов 1893-1911 IV: 743-746); the word could reflect a mythologeme if regarded as a continuation of a vrddhi form *apa-, reminding OInd. apam garbhah ‘Sohn der Gewasser’ (Bohtlingk&Roth 1855 I: 275 with a commentary: “(so) heisst Agni, weil er aus den Wassern der Luft als Blitz entspringt”). Cf. Xaleql 1977: 2-3.

abastan [LN] ‘to hide’, also abastan, represented by several derivatives, but its only documented form is abastangah [LF] ‘a place of concealment’; an obsolete verb, its present base would be reconstructable as *abar- (cf. gastan), probably to one of the Vpar-roots , e.g. to Vpar- ‘to cross over’, (PIE *Vper-, IEW: 811), Av. para- ‘fort, zur Seite’, Sogd. Buddh. pr’’ck ‘beyond’, OInd. para ‘away, off’. Horn 1901: 142; AIW: 852; Bailey 1979: 215; EWAia II: 88-89.

abad [Fird.] ‘cultivated, peopled, fair’, MPrs. abad [’p’t, Man. ’b’d] ‘populous, thriving, prosperous’ < *apata- ‘protected’ ypa- ‘to protect’, cf. payidan; Av. afiieidiiai ‘zu untersttzen’ is an infinitive to a-pa-. Horn 1893: 2; Horn 1901: 50; AIW: 330, 885-86; MacKenzie 1971: 1; Xaleql 1977: 3.

aban ‘the eighth month of the Zoroastrian calender, dedicated to the Waters’, MPrs. aban [’p’n, Man. ’b’n] ‘eighth month, tenth day of a month’, Sogd. Mug ”p’nc, Man. ”b’nc, BTrunl ’b’n the month-name, Man. ”pwx/”bwx, BTrunl ’bk the day-name, cf. ab1. MacKenzie 1971: 1; Boyce 1982: 59-60; Panaino 1982: 658-677.

abistan [Fird.] ‘pregnant’, also abist [ManucihrT], abista [VR], abistan [RumT] - most probably from different dialects; MPrs. abus [’pws], abustan, abestan [’bystn] < * a-puOra-tanu- ‘in whose body there is a son’, but Av. apuOra- ‘die (eben) zur Nachkommenschaft gelangt ist, (jungst) geboren hat’, cf. pisar and tan. Horn 1893: 2, Horn 1901: 25; Hubschmann 1895: 5; AIW: 85-86; Nyberg 196474: 28-29; Henning 1977 II: 275; XaleqT 1977: 3-5; MacKenzie 1971: 3-4.

abisxvar [Fird.] ‘river-bed, reservoir’, a difficult compound: Horn (1983: 2-3) and Hubschmann (1895: 5) rejected former etymologies connecting this word to Av. aiwis.xar Oa- ‘zum Genuss geeignet’ (so de Lagarde 1884: 75 and Mann 1983: 701, cf. AIW: 96) and explained it as containing *api- ‘water’ (its hypothetical NS *apis, cf. AIW: 329) and Vxvar- (v. xvardan); however, Av. *api- ‘water’ obviously does not exist (Hoffmann in Brandenstein&Mayrhofer 1964: 103, EWAia I: 81); thus the first part of this compound being ap- (v. ab1), its second component could be tentatively identified with Sogd. ’ysywr, Man. [dxsewar] xsywr ‘name of the fourth day’, but with its original meaning ‘possession of a prince’ (< *xsaOrawarya-, Gershevitch 1954: 26-27 §171-172): the original meaning of the word was probably ‘a (princely) possession of waters’; metathesis *ab-xsewar > ab-esxwar is to be assumed; variants like abxar are due to popular etymology. Cf. XaleqT 1977: 5-8.

abld [LN] ‘a spark of fire’, also ablz, ablz [a quotation from Munjlk for abiz is given by LF]; Stackelberg adduced Arm. abetc ‘Zunder’ and Georg. abedi (1884: 492, cf. de Lagarde 1877: 2) to prove that abid (or better abed) is the original form; < *(a)-apa-aida-, cf. Khot. hlha- ‘soot’ < *ai6a- < *aida-, Av. aesma- ‘firewood’ (v. hezum), all to yaid- ‘to burn’, OInd. EDH- ‘to set on fire’. Justi 1895: 6; Horn 1901: 91; Bartholomae 1894: 124; AIW: 26-27; Bailey 1979: 488b-89a; EWAia I: 267. abluc/j also abluj, v. abluc.

abnus [Fird., ZamaxsarT] ‘ebony’, MPrs. abnUs [’bnws], together with Arab. ’abanUs from Gr. efienoc which came from Egyp. hbnj. Spiegelberg 1907: 131; Horn 1901: 6; Biberstein&Kazimirski 1860 I: 6; MacKenzie 1971: 4.

abro [Fird.] ‘respect, honour’, the popular explanation as ‘water of the face’ appears still valid - in comparison with Arab. ma’u-l-vajh1 ‘honneur, consideration dont un homme d’honneur jouit, lit. eau du visage’ (Biberstein-Kazimirski 1860 II: 1169) and Turk. juz suju ‘die Ehre, der Ruf’ (also lit. ‘water of the face’, PagnoB 19831911 IV: 746); the sacral function of water is reflected in these expressions, cf. Poonawala 1982: 27-28.

acar [Nasir Xusrav] ‘mixed pickles’, borrowed from Turk., cf. Chag. acar ‘sour vegetables’, MTurk. acyy ‘sour’, acymaq [Mahmud al-Kashgari] ‘sauer sein’. Doerfer 1963-1975 II: 14; Rasanen 196971: 4a; Brockelmann 1928: 1.

adarm [LF-UnsurT, MuxtarT Taznavl, Nizami] ‘saddle-cloth’, also adram, afiarm, adarma, atarma, a Turk. loanword, cf. MTurk. adar (* edar) ‘saddle’, with the suffix -ma, which had later been abbreviated: adrym [Mahmud al-Kashgari]. Rasanen 1969-71: 36a; Brockelmann 1928: 3.

adiyanda [RUdakT] ‘rainbow’, possibly < *a-di-day-ant-(aka-) ‘observing’, cf. Av. a + ^da(y)- ‘hinsehen auf, betrachten’ (AIW: 725); less probably a “learned” borrowing from Indian, a compound like aditya-antah ‘close to the Aditya-deities, i.e., to the Sun etc.’ adlna [FarruxT] ‘Friday’, Horn identified it with ayin ‘Sitte, Schmuck’, but cf. Sogd. Man. ”dyng, Khwar. ’dynk ‘Friday’ -according to Nyberg, *adenay ‘congregation’ (a meaning required by Arab. yaumu-l-jum a) is traceble to *ati-ayana-, OPrs. ati-ay- ‘to go along’. Horn 1893: 15-16; Brandenstein&Mayrhofer 1964: 109; Nyberg 1964-74: 12; Benzing 1983: 30-31; Panaino 1982: 664-65.

aSar [DaqTqT] ‘fire’, Kurd. ar, Osset. art, MPrs. adur [’twr, Man. ’dwr], Khwar. ’rw, Av. atar-; atas ‘fire’ is a “learned” reflex of the same Old Iranian word; cf. OInd. atharvan- ‘a priest’, Arm. airem

‘to burn’ (< *atёr- ), *Vat- ? Horn 19G1: 21, 31; AIW: 312-16; Xaleqї 1977: 11-12; Nyberg 1964-74; MacKenzie 1971: 5; Абаев 195B-95 I: 69-7G; IEW 1959-69: 69; EWAia I: 6G.

adm [Nasir Xusrav] ‘beauty, ornamentation’, an archaic form of aym, ayina.

adun [Sana^] ‘thus, in that manner’, probably an analogical and “proportional” formation to ёдйn, influenced by an.

afand [Fird.] ‘war, strife’, could be a present-base nominal derivation from Vjand-, cf. Sugh. sijan- ‘to rise’, Yazg. jin- ‘to descend’, Khot. phand- : phast- ‘to move’, OInd. PHAN- ‘to jump’ or/and spand- ‘to quiver, kick (of animals)’; thus this word is rather of Eastern Iranian origin. Bailey 1979: 211b-12a, 259a, 261a; Morgenstierne 1974: 72; KEWA III: 536-37, EWAia II: 199-2GG.

afandan [RudaM] ‘to create’, pres. ajarm-, cf. ajarmis [Fird.] ‘creation’; MPrs. ajundan [’pwlytn], Sogd. Chr. Man. sjryn-: sjryt-; frequently given the same etymology as ajrm ‘praise’, which are however semantically incompatible; that is why Bailey’s etymology is to be preferred: < *a-pi-pra- ‘to bring into existence’, a reduplicated thematic present to Vhar- (v. hurdan), cf. Av. -hijra in asta.hijra- ‘of eight characters’ and a-hijra- ‘perpetual’; the present base could have been *a-pi-pr-ani-, cf. Bartholomae 1B95: 74-75; Horn 1B93: 1G; AIW: 92, 262; Bailey 193G-32: 5B7; Gershevitch 1954: 91 §179; Nyberg 1964-74: 1G; MacKenzie 1971: 5; Xa^ 1977: 44-45.

afarrn [Fird.] ‘praise, glory, applause’, MPrs. ajrm [’pryn], Sogd. Man. ”jryn ‘to bless’, Av. a-jrmami ‘jemandem etwas feierlich (an)wйnschen’, OInd. PRAY- ‘to delight, to cheer’. Horn 1B93: 1G; AIW: 1G16-17; MacKenzie 1971: 5; Bailey 1979: 314b-315a; EWAia II: 1B1-B2.

afdum [Majmasa-t-Tavanx] ‘last’, found also with ha in the conglutination hajdum [RudaH]; MPrs. ahdom [’pdwm, Man. ’hdwm] < *apatama- (cf. Bibl.-Aram. ’appetom), cf. OPrs. apataram ‘weiter weg, auberhalb (von etwas)’. Nyberg 1964-74: 37; Brandenstein&Mayrhofer 1964: 1G4; MacKenzie 1971: 3; Bailey 1979: 249b; Xaleqї 1977: 2-44; Gershevitch 19B5: 262.

afraza [Sozarn] ‘flame’, could be traced to *a-apa-raja-ka-: since referring to sparkles, might contain Vrang- ‘(to be) light, small, moving’, cf. Wakhi ranjk ‘light, fast’, Khot. arramj- ‘to grind’ (also with other prefixes), Sogd. Man. rynck ‘small’, Av. гэnjyo ‘easier’ (cf. OInd. laghJyas-, RAMH- ‘to hurry’); cf. ajroza; however, both to avoid a hypothetical agglomeration of two prefixes and to obtain a more convincing semantic explanation it would be preferable to

postulate for this word East Iranian origin and to connect it with Khwar. ’hr’z- ‘aufflemman’, ’hr’z ‘flame’ < *d-hraz-: Vhraz- - Khot. haljsaka- ‘flame’, Av. hraz- ‘strahlen’, OInd. BHRAJ- ‘to shine’; -j-

< *-h- would indicate to borrowing, cf. NPrs. harazidan. AIW: 97B, 152B; Morgenstierne 193B II: 537; Gershevitch 1954: 149 §983; Emmerick 1968: 1G; Bailey 1979: 279a; Samadi 1986: 1-2; EWAia II: 279-BG, 421-22.

afr6sa [RйdakЇ] ‘sweatmeat’, also ajrdsa, MPrs. ajrdsag [’plwsk] ‘sweetmeat made of flour, butter and honey’, a suffixal (*-aka-) dialect variant to ahlйc, to Vrauk-/Vraus-, v. rdsan. MacKenzie 1971: 5.

afr6za [Sozarn] ‘wick of lamp’ < *a-apa-rauca-ka-, *‘burning down, burning away’, Vrauc-, cf. ajrdxtan, rdsan.

aftab [Fird.] ‘ sun’, Parth. ahdah [’hd’h], Syr. loanword ’hth’n; this word is usually explained as a compound containing ah2 ‘shining, splendour’ and tah ‘heat’ (cf. tajtan); for “sun”-words cf. Sanskrit epithets like candamsuh ‘having hot rays’, suhharasmih ‘having bright rays’ etc., Monier-Williams 1851: 784; for words of similar meaning denoting ‘sun’ cf. Afgh. yarma (v. garm), Kurd. roj (v. rdz), tav; Jeremias and Maroth discussed the internal -t-, which would had become -d-, if the word were an Old Iranian inheritance: this is why it is to be considered a Middle Iranian creation like the parallel MPrs. xwar-tapak ‘blazing sun’ (Jeremias & Maroth, 1977: 223-24); however, the Middle Persian word is likely to have been adopted from Parthian and reetymologized, since the Parthian word presents regular phonetic development. Horn 1893: 1, 9, Horn 19G1: 78; Xa^ 1977: 42; cf. Eilers 1974: 336.

aftaba [Ibn Sma] ‘water-pot’ either a compound consisting of ah1 ‘water’ and taha ‘(frying) pan’ (cf. tajtan) or simply ‘sun-like’, describing the upper extended part of the bright jar. H^schmann 1883 I: 252; Horn 19G1: 78.

agaft [Unsun] ‘affliction, grief’ < *a-kmp-ta-, cf. Sogd. ’’k’ht’k ‘wrong’ (Gershevitch 1954: 21 §146) and kfit’t ‘may have split’ (ibid. 129 § 873), Khot. camhula- ‘disturbed’, Vkamp-/ Vcamp- ‘to shake, to disturb’ (cf. cajta), OInd. KAMP- ‘to tremble’. Bailey 1979: 99b;WAia: 3G6.

agana [Sozarn] ‘stuffing, lining’, also akana, to agandan. agandan [RudaH] ‘to fill, to stuff’, also akandan, pres. agin-, MPrs. agandan [’kndn]; the older proposal to connect agandan to OInd. ghana- ‘clump, thick’ is now supplanted by the exact comparison to Sogd. akan- ‘to fill’, Vkan- ‘to cover’; it could be ultimately a correspondence to OInd. KHAN1- ‘to dig’ with the semantic move ‘to dig (at one spot)’ > ‘to stuff (a pit)’, NB the

prefix; v. kandan, avgandan. Horn 1983: 1G; Horn 19G1: 13G; MacKenzie 1971: 6; Gershevitch 1954: 71 §475; XaleqT 1977: 4647; Bailey 1979: 327a; EWAia I: 184, 445-46, 512.

aganJ [Kisa’T] ‘sausage’ < *d-kana-сЇ, as ‘stuffed, filled’ to dgandan.

agah [Fird.] ‘aware; news’, MPrs. dgdh [’k’s, Man. ’g’(h)] < *d-kdsa-, Av. dkasat ‘er erblickte’, Vkas- ‘to look’, cf. Afgh., Khot. Vkas- ‘to look’, OInd. KAS- “to appear” (hence OInd. dkdsa- ‘a free or open space, sky or athmosphere’, which corresponds phonetically to the Persian words, but has another meaning); Nyberg proposed dgdh < *d-kd-ea-, Vkd- ‘to notice’ (he adduced OInd. cdyati ‘to notice, to be aware’), -ea- corresponding to the OInd. suffix -tha-and MPrs. -s- being an “inverse” writing: however this etymology does not take into account Avestan forms; moreover, OInd. cdyati has the root CAY1-; cf. nigdh. Horn 1893: 1G; Horn 19G1: 93; AIW: 459-6G; Nyberg 1964-74: 12-13; Henning 1977 I: 136, 32G; MacKenzie 1971: 6; XaleqT 1977: 45-46; KEWA I: 2G4, EWAia I: 344-45, 531.

agm [Fird.] ‘full, stuffed’, obviously to dgandan; to explain -Ї- it is necessary to reconstruct *d-kan-ya-, cf. mm6 ‘sky’, which is connected to Av. mainiiauua- ‘celestial’ (H^schmann 1895: 131).

agur [Sana’T] ‘burnt brick’, together with Arab. djur and like Osset., Georg. aguri, Aram. ’dgurd to Assyr. agurru [ukurru] ‘kiln-fired brick’, Zimmern 1917: 31; Kaufman 1974: 33; CAD A I: 16G-163, cf. Абаев 1958-95 I: 35-36.

agus [BaihaqT] ‘embrace, bosom’, a “Persianizing” variant of dyds.

ayar [9Am9aq] ‘the dry bed of a river with a little water left here and there’ < *d-gara-, with dyastan to Vgar-, OInd. GHAR- ‘to besprinkle’; dydr compared by Henning (1977 II: 15G) with Sogd. dyarte ‘muddy, juicy’, might be a closely related word. EWAia I: 512-13.

ayastan [Fird.] ‘to moisten’, secondary infinitive dydrdan, pres. dydr-, should be an Eastern Iranian borrowing, due both to -g- and to the distribution of cognates: Osset. qaryn ‘to penetrate (about liquids)’, Sugh. a-zer- ‘to soak, to drench’, Sogd. ’ny’rtk ‘fertile, juicy’, Khwar. syr- ‘to become wet’ - Vyar-; cf. OInd. GHAR- ‘to sprinkle, to moisten’. Horn 19G1: 14G; Bailey 1979: 227b; Benzing 1983: 595-96; Абаев 1958-95 II: 268-69; XaleqT 1977: 4G-42; EWAia I: 512-13.

ayal [LF] ‘instigation, excitement’ (SN has the verb har-dydlad)

< *d-garSa-, cf. Av. gdrdSa2 - ‘gierig, hastig’, OInd. GARDH- ‘to be

eager, to desire’. Horn 19G1: 139; AIW: 523; Bailey 1979: 38b; EWAia I: 474.

ayar [Nasir Xusrav] ‘wet’, hence secondary infinitives agardan, ayandan [Fird.], to Sogd. "yrty- [ayarte] ‘muddy, juicy’ (Henning 1977 II: 31, 15G), v. ayastan.

ayaz [RudaM] ‘beginning’, a borrowing from Sogd. ’’y’z- ‘to begin’ (also jr’y’z- ‘to begin’, pcy’z- ‘to receive’), IIgaz- ‘to take’, cf. Khot. pajays- ‘to take’, Osset. aqaz ‘help’ (< *‘taking hold of’); further connections difficult, though comparable to OInd. GADH- ‘to take hold of, to seize’: Ir. for *-z- : Indo-Ar. *-d(h)- cf. ay6s (dissimilation or *-dh-s- with a suffix or an enlargement). Henning 1977 I: 644; Gershevitch 1954: 96 §612, 136 §922, 141 §957; Bailey 1979: 199a; EWAia I: 46G-61; cf. Абаев 1958-95 I: 54.

ayfl [Rum^ ‘sheep-cote’, borrowed from Turk., cf. MTurk. ayU. Doerfer 1963-75 II: 82-84; Rasanen 1969-71: 8a; Севортян 1974: 83-85.

ay6s [Fird.] ‘embrace’, also agrn < *a-gauz-ti- or *a-gaud-ti-, MPrs. agos [’kws], cf. Parth. ayoz [’gwz, ’’ywz] ‘encirclement, enclosure, covering’ I gaud- ‘to cover’: Sogd. ’’ynd-, pt-ywz- ‘to cover’, Khot. uysgun- ‘to uncover’, Afgh. ayundэl, ayustэl ‘to put on clothes’, Av. gaoz- ‘to conceal’, OInd. GOH- ‘to conceal’ (Indo-Ar. *-dh- : Ir. *-z- as in ayaz); cf. jaryШ. AIW: 485; MacKenzie 1971: 6; Bailey 1979: 38b; Boyce 1977: 9; EWAia I: 5G2-3.

ah [passim] ‘ah! alas! a sigh’, onomatopoetic? Henning quotes Sogd. dn’h ‘toothache’ (1977 II: 243), which contains *dand(a)- and ah-, maybe to *axa-, cf. ak; a contamination of a meaningful word and a ‘sigh’ is also te be taken into consideration.

ahak [LabM] ‘lime, plaster’, < *ahaka-, thus confirming Morgenstierne’s explanation of Parach. hay ‘ashes’ and Kurd. ax ‘earth, soil’, cf. xak ‘dust’, Parth. ’y’g ‘place’, Khot. aye ‘ground’, Av. ai- ‘earth’. Morgenstierne 1942: 266; Bailey 1979: 19b-2Ga.

ahan [RudaH] ‘iron’, MPrs. ahan [’h(y)n, ’s(y)n, Man. ’’hwn], Kurd. hesin, Afgh. ospэna, Osset. (Digor) ajsйn (‘the ploughshare’), Sugh. sipin, Sogd. Chr. ’spnync, sjnyq (adjectives), Khot. Mssana-, all < *atsuana-, *atsuania-, cf. Av. haosajnaёna- ‘made of iron’; Abayev connected the word to *tsuanta- ‘sacred’ (cf. gusjand), whereas Bailey more realistically compared it with Gr. Kuavot; ‘dark, dark-blue’ (in contrast to red copper): however, both meanings could come from the same source - hlue being the sacred colour. Horn 1893: 14; Horn 19G1: 181; H^schmann 1895: 1G; AIW: 159-6G, 1737; Nyberg 1964-74: 32; Абаев 1958-95 I: 48G-81; MacKenzie

1971: 6; Henning 1977 I: 559, II: 604, 611; Bailey 1979: 486b-87a; XaleqT 1977: 68-70; Morgenstierne 1927: 12.

ahang1 ‘tune’, probably to Vdang- ‘to draw’, thought as of ‘stretching a sound’, cf. ahanjidan.

ahang [Fird.] ‘intention, purpose’, MPrs. ahang [’hng] ‘pull, draught’, cf. ahanjidan, hextan, —with another, abstract semantic development, if compared to ahang1.

ahanjidan [Nasir Xusrav] ‘to pull’, also ahaxtan, cf. ahang2; MPrs. ahanjidan [’hncytn] more archaic ahixtan [’hhtn] < *a-danja-, Vdang-: Khot. thamj- ‘to draw’, Av. danj- ‘to pull’, OInd. TANC- ‘to cause coagulation, to draw together’, TAN1 - ‘to stretch’; cf. farhaxtan, palhang, sarhang. Horn 1893: 14-15; Horn 1901: 12627; Hubschmann 1895: 10-11; Bartholomae 1899: 192; AIW: 78485; Nyberg 1964-74: 10; Bailey 1979: 148a; MacKenzie 1971: 6; Xaleql 1977: 70-77; EWAia I: 614-15, 618-19J

ahar1 [UnsurT] ‘starch’ also ahar < *a-hara-, cf. OInd. saram ‘firmness, strength, hardness’: Mayrhofer (KEWA III: 461) adduces Thieme’s explanation of the Indian word: “Essenz, das was einer Sache ihre Kraft und ihr Wesen gibt” (1954: 562, fn. 2), which would perfectly match with the Persian word as well.

ahar2 [?] ‘ food’, with Parth. ’h’r and Sogd. ’’h’r borrowings from OInd. ahara- ‘das Zusichnehmen der Nahrung; Nahrung’. Bohtlingk&Roth 1855-75 I: 748-49; Henning 1977 I: 512.

ahista [Nasir Xusrav] ‘slow, gentle’. Horn explained it as *a-hasta- (Vhad- ‘to sit’, cf. nisastan, Horn 1901: 84); it is semantically more convincing to connect it to OInd. sasti ‘is inactive’, Av. hayuhars-stat- ‘der im Verborgenen sich befindet’, AIW: 1167; KEWA III: 449.

ahmand [AsadT] ‘a liar’, also ahomand [VR], a derivative of aho.

aho [Abu Sukur] ‘a defect, a fault’ MPrs. ahog [’hwk, Man. ’’hwg] < *ah(i)-va-: if ‘pollutedness’ is assumed as its original meaning, comparable to Av. ahita- ‘verunreinigt’, OInd. asita- ‘dark-coloured, black’. AIW: 345; MacKenzie 1971: 6; EWAia I: 146; suffix -o, cf. Horn 1901: 185.

ahu [RudakT; cf. davidan] ‘a gazelle’, Kurd. ask, MPrs. ahug [TYB’, ’hwk, Man. ’(’)hwg], Khot. aska, Sogd. ’’s’wk, all < *asuka-, Av. asu- ‘schnell, rasch’, OInd. asu- ‘quick’. Horn 1901: 93; Hubschmann 1895: 11; AIW: 338; MacKenzie 1971: 7; XaleqT 1977: 77-78; Teubner 1974: 301; Bailey 1979: 28a; EWAia I: 179-80.

ahun [Nasir Xusrav, AsadT] ‘a cavern’, very probably a borrowing from Khot. aho ‘hole’, Vxau- /Vkau- ‘to form a hole’, also

in Osset. k’osM ‘niche, hole in the wall’ (for other connections cf. Абаев 1958-95 I: 642-43); cf. OInd. kosah ‘cask, coop, cupboard, treasury’. Bailey 1979: 3Gb-31a, 63b-64a; EWAia I: 4G3-4.

aJang [FZT] ‘a wrinkle’ v. azang.

aJastan ‘to plant a tree, to fix a^pale, to erect a stone’ [Vullers and LN contain only a reference to FS; however, nav-ajasta ‘recently planted’ is attested by many sources, beginning with LF, cf. LN XLV: 818]; from *a- and yat-, Yaghn. yat- ‘to be placed’, Av. yдiвэma ‘wir haben den Platz eingenommen’, YAT- ‘se mettre en place’, cf. OInd. YAT- ‘appoint to one’s proper place’. Horn 19G1: 142; Livshits apud Андреев&Пещерева 1957: 365; Kellens&Pirart 1988: 2.29G (AIW: 1237-38); EWAia II: 394-95; Kellens 1995: 46.

aJїdan ‘to quilt’, v. azidan.

aJfl [LN] ‘dried fruits or nuts’, could be a popular borrowing (and forgotten) from Arab. ’ajil ‘rassemble, reuni’, Biberstein&Kazi-mirski 186G I: 14.

aJm [Fird.] ‘hurted, pierced’, -a substantivized praesent base of ajidan, azidan.

aJul [Ruzbihan] ‘eructation, flatulency’ < *a-jrta-, to Vgar- ‘to swallow’ with the praefix *a- which inverts the direction of the action as in * a-gam-, cf. amadan; the root is attested in Av. aspd.gar-, пэгэ.gar- ‘(Rosse, Manner) verschlingend’, Afgh. yarai ‘glutton’, OInd. GAR12 ‘schlingen’. AIW: 219, 512, 1G72; EWAia I: 469-7G.

ak [Suzarn] ‘a defect, a calamity’; it was thought (LN II: 141-44) that this word was ‘extracted’ from Dahak, the Persian name of the dragon Azi Dahaka (v. Azdaha), through the interpretation ‘ten bad qualities’: “dah ak”; etymological connections are not in favour of this explanation, they rather indicate to direct Iranian etymology, though a “learned” Zoroastrian borrowing can not be excluded, cf. MPrs. ak [’k], Av. ayd, axti-, aka- ‘schlecht, ^el, bose’, OInd. aka-‘pain’, but also Khot. achai ‘disease, illness’. Horn 19G1: 22; AIW: 44-45; Henning 1977 II: 31; MacKenzie 1971: 7; Bailey 1979: 16b; EWAia I: 39.

akaJ [Unsun] ‘kind of a hook’, also akanj, agaj. cf. kaj‘crooked’ and Sogd. ’ksyc. Horn 19G1: 63; Henning 1977 II: 31.

akasa [Suzarn] ‘suspended, hanging’, because of -s- rather an East Iranian borrowing, Vkas- ‘to adhere’, cf. Khot. akasta-‘unattached’, pacasta- ‘suspended’, Osset. nyxasyn ‘adhere, stick together’; further connections not yet clear. Bailey 1979: 57a; Абаев 1958-95 II: 22G-21.

akup [XusravanI] ‘the inside of the mouth (referring to a monkey)’, difficult to explain: maybe akin to kafidan ‘to break, to burst’, semantically comparable to Arm. beran ‘mouth’, which is connected to Gr. 9&pay^ ‘cleft, ravine’, ^apuy^ ‘throat’; as to its sound shape, the word could have had the same destiny as kup ‘mountain’; cf. also kap, kab. Buck 1949: 228; Kellens quotes KAMP- ‘vibrer’ (1995: 14).

al1 [FarruxI] ‘dull red’, a Turk. borrowing, cf. Uigh., Chag. etc. al ‘hochrot’, MTurk. al ‘orangefarbiger Brokat’. Rasanen 1969-71: 14b; Doerfer 1963-75 II: 94-95; Brockelmann 1928: 6; CeBopraH 1974: 125-26 (has some vague indications about the “coincidence of a Turkish and a Indo-European roots”).

al2 [DaqIql] ‘offspring, dynasty’, frequently not recognized as an Arabic borrowing; cf. Biberstein&Kazimirski 1860 I: 69: al ‘race, dynastie’, to <’-w-l ‘arriver, parvenir a un lieu, a quelque chose’, ibid., pp. 69-71.

alas [LN] ‘the beech’, also alas, alas (Wollastone): Henning (1977 II: 577) explains these words of TalisI origin, together with ras, which comes from GIlanI, but “has now been adopted as standard Persian”, deriving them from ^Iraxs- ‘red’; another derivate of the same root is alas [SiraJu-d-DIn RajI] ‘a live coal’; v. raxs ‘a mixture of red and white’, — the colour of Rustam’s horse Raxs. Bailey 1979: 362a.

alextan [Abu Sukur] ‘to rear, to kick’, praes. alez-; one of the few Persian words preserving IE *l: Mayrhofer (EWAia II: 459) supports the old (Jaba 1879: 384) connection of this word with Goth. laikan, OEng. lacan, Lith. laigyti, and insists on keeping it apart from OInd. REJ- ‘to cause to tremble’, cf. larzidan; Kurd. listin ‘to play’ [FarIzov] could be a cognate of alextan. Horn 1893: 11; Horn 1901: 134; XaleqI 1977: 50; Bailey 1979: 364a.

aloh ‘eagle’, also aluh, aloh [TBalsamI], aluh, Kurd. elo, huli [Rizgar], MPrs. aluh [’lwh, Man. ’’lwf] < *arzifya-, a kind of a vrddhi as compared to *rzifya- which is represented by OPrs. *rdifya [Elam. ir-tup-pi-ia, Gr. dp^vpoq (*dpZvpoq) asxo^], Av. drdzifiia-, OInd. rji'pya-; AIW: 354; Horn had connected aloh to Gr. opvi^ that was not accepted by Hubschmann. Horn 1898: 10; Hubschmann 1895: 8; Nyberg 1964-74: 14; Henning 1977 I: 559; MacKenzie 1971: 7; XaleqI 1977: 48-50; Schmitt 1970: 67 Anm. 19; EWAia I: 250-51.

_v _ _—

aluftan [Vullers: FS and BQ; FZT: «Ayin-i Nigaris»] ‘to rage; to be afflicted’, only the participle alufta is attested; one of the words that seem to continue IE *l and have a rather exclusive counterpart in

Ancient Indian, cf. OInd. LOBH- ‘to be confounded, to desire eagerly’; Abayev related Osset. (Digor) ilivd ‘unhappy, poor’ to the same root ( < *vi-lufta-, Абаев 1966: 9-14, cf Абаев 1958-95 I: 543); all of that could however be misleading, - if the word is a borrowing from Sogd. ”Swfi- ‘to fasten a quarrel’ (Gershevitch 1954: 68 §453), Vdub- is attested, e.g., in Germanic: ON dubba, OEng. dubbian ‘zum Ritter schlagen’. IEW: 268; KEWA III: 107-8, EWAia II: 483-84.

aluydan [RudakI] ‘to become angry’, maybe connected to aruydan; if aryanda is a praesent base derivative, then probably aruyda < *a-ry-ta-, as a past participle. Horn 1901: 56; Mo'In 1979 I: 32.

alu [Nasir Xusrav] ‘a plum’, also hulu, MPrs. alu [Junker 1912: 51]; the word is likely to be an ancient ‘Kulturwort’ (other forms of it could be seen in Gr. ^a (Seleucos the Glossator), Germ. Ahl, Pauly-Wissowa 1893-1980 XIX: 1458, Hehn 1870: 376-81, Schrader apud Hehn), though its provenience remains obscure [**wlsfia- in some unknown ancient Near Eastern language?]; less probable is the connection to IE *V(s)ldi/- ‘blue, blueish’, with only the second root-increment remaining (cf. IEW: 965) or the reconstruction of IE *Vel-.

aludan [FarruxI] ‘to defile, to pollute’, praes. alay-, MPrs. aludan ['lwtn, praes. Td-, Man. 'rwd-, - with an ‘inverse’ -d-, reconstructed to adjust the past stem]: *a-lavayami : *a-lUta-; -l- is here in variation with -r-, cf. Osset. (Digor) ruga ‘dust’, MPrs. rwd ‘rascal’, Khot. rruma ‘dust, mud’, Vr/lav- probably lost in Indo-Aryan; for IE connections cf. Gr. ^u^a ‘dirt’. Horn 1893: 10; Horn 1901: 130; Hubschmann 1895: 8, 136; Henning 1977 I: 567; MacKenzie 1971: 7; Xaleql 1977: 47-48; Абаев 1958-95 I: 56-57, II: 443-44; Bailey 1979: 366b; IEW: 681.

amadan [RudakI] ‘to come’, pres. dyad; MPrs. amadan [YTWN-tn, Man. 'mdn, praes. ”y-], also madan [mtn, Man. mdn]; the praesent and the past of this verb are suppletive: past amad < *a-ym-ata-, cf. OPrs. ham-gm-ata- ‘assembled’, para-gm-ata- ‘went forth’ (which are forms of an ancient participium necessitatis, whereas other Iranian languages have traces of the part. perf. pass. *a-ga-ta-

< a-gm-ta-: Parth. 'gd, Khot. ata-, Avestan has both gata- and ydmata-, Schmitt 1989: 80), Vgam- ‘to go’, OInd. GAM- ‘to move, to come, to go’; praes. ayad < *a-ayati, cf. Av. a-ay- ‘adire’, Vi-, OInd. AY7- ‘to go, to reach’. Horn 1893: 11-12; Horn 1901: 132; Hubschmann 1895: 8; AIW: 150; Brandenstein&Mayrhofer 1964: 120; Kent

1950: 183; Nyberg 1964-74: 15, 129; MacKenzie 1971: 7, 53; Xaleql 1977: 53; EWAia I: 102, 465-66; Kellens 1995: 12, 18-19.

amana [SozanI] ‘split wood’, also amana: maybe, a loanword from Arabic, cf. Arab. amana ‘objet confie en depot’, Biberstein& Kazimirski 1860 I: 57.

amadan [RudakI] ‘to arrange, to prepare’, also amudan; cf. Osset. amajyn ‘to construct, to arrange’, Sogd. amate [Chr. 'mty, Man. ’’m’ty] ‘prepared, ready’, Av. a + Vma(y)- ‘Befahigung anweisen, sich als tuchtig erproben’, OInd. MA2- ‘to measure’. Horn 1893: 11; Horn 1901: 129; AIW: 1165-66; Gershevitch 1954: 3 §14; Абаев 1958-95 I: 49; Xaleql 1977: 51-52; EWAia II: 341-43; Kellens 1995: 44.

ama"1 [SozanI] ‘a plough’ < *a-mata-ci, cf. Yazdl matk id. (FBehdlnan has matak ‘a rod in the construction of a yoke’), MPrs. amaxsih ['m'xsyh] ‘harnessed’, Khot. masarika ‘mattock’ (< * mats'), Av. upa maitim ‘auf dem Scholtenknuppel’ (V.3.20), Arm. (Iranian loanword) mac ‘plough-handle’, OInd. matya- ‘a kind of a harrow’; Bartholomae did not recognize the voicing of intervocal *-tc- (after the syncope of -a-) and therefore could not accept the connection of amaj and matk (1890 II: 24 note 2). Horn 1893: 11; Horn 1901: 73; Henning 1977 I: 141; Xaleql 1977: 50-51; Bailey 1979: 326ab; Hoffmann apud Humbach 1961: 103 Anm.1; EWAia II: 297.

ama"2 [FarruxI] ‘target, butt’ is probably another word (cf. ama/) and may contain Vma(y)- ‘to measure’, cf. amadan.

amar [RudakI] ‘calculation’, MPrs. amar ['m'r], <*a-hmara-, cf. mar, hamar, sumaridan. Horn 1893: 11; Horn 1901: 102; Bailey 1930-32: 65-66; Nyberg 1964-74: 15; MacKenzie 1971: 7; XaleqI 1977: 52.

amas [Nasiri Xusrav] ‘swelling’, also amah, < *a-Smasa-, Vdma-fVdam3- ‘to swell’, cf. Sogd., Khwar. Sm's- ‘aufschwellen, kraftig werden’, OInd. dhmata- ‘blown up’, DHAM1- ‘to blow’; cf. damidan. Horn 1901: 93f; Gershevitch 1954: 318; Henning 1971: 15a; Samadi 1986: 65; EWAia I: 775.

amextan [UnsurI] ‘to mix’, pres. amiz-, subst. amiy ‘mixture; copulation’; MPrs. amixtan, amiz- ['myhtn, 'myc-, Man. 'myxtn, 'myz-], Parth. amixt ['myxt], amixtay ['myxtg] ‘mele’; Persian and Parthian words come directly from Vmaik-f Vmaic-, whereas other Indo-Iranian forms require Vmik-s-, cf. Av. misti ‘together ^ mixed up’, OInd. MEKS- ‘to mix’ (Parthian has also intr. amixs- ['myxs-] ‘etre mele’). Horn 1893: 12; Horn 1901:134; AIW: 1187; Ghilain

1939: 81; Nyberg 1964-74: 15; MacKenzie 1971: 8; Xale^ 1977: 56-59; EWAia II: 373-74; IEW: 714.

amila [Nasiri Xusrav] ‘myrobalan’, arabisized dmulaf, Vullers glosses it as ‘fructus Phyllanthi Emblicae’ and regards it as an Indian borrowing (1855-64 I: 52-53), cf. OInd. dmalaka-

‘Myrobalanenbaum, Emblica officinalis’ (Bohtlingk&Roth 1855-75 I: 67G), cf. also FTZ I: 88.

V

amoxtan [Abu Sukur] ‘to learn’, pres. dmoz-, MPrs. hammoxtan [’LPWN-tn, hmwhtn, praes. hmwc-, hmwz-, Man. hmwxtn]: Modern Persian and Middle Persian forms obviously have different prefixes, respectively *d- and *ham-; cf. also Sogd. mwck’ ‘teacher’; Nyberg compared OInd. muncati ‘to let loose’ and explained MPrs. hammoxtan as ‘to give out (knowledge) from oneself’; Prs. dmoxtan would then be ‘to attract (knowledge) to oneself’; cf. Av. jra-muxti-‘untying, releasing’, OInd. MOC- ‘to let loose’; v. moza. Horn 1893: 12; Horn 19G1: 135; AIW: 988; Nyberg 1964-74: 15; Gershevitch 1954: 147 967; MacKenzie 1971: 41; Xa^ 1977: 54-56; EWAia II: 382; Kellens 1995: 45.

V

amury [Abu Sukur] ‘somewhat; quantity; value’ < *d-(h)mr-ka, for review of derivatives of *^(h)mar- cf. Bailey 193G-32: 65-66; cf. also dmdr, sumurdan.

amumdan [Baihaq^ ‘to forgive, to pardon’, MPrs. dmu^dan [’mwlcytn, Man. ’mwrzyd] < *d-mrj-, simplified from **-mrjd-[mrdDd-], Parth. amйzd [’’mwjd] ‘mercy’, Khot. mulysdi ‘favour, mercy’, Av. mэrэzdd- ‘to pardon’, OInd. MARD- ‘to be merciful, to pardon’ < *marzd-; cf. mdUdan. Horn 1893: 12; Horn 19G1: 133; AIW: 1152-53, 1175; Nyberg 1964-74: 16; MacKenzie 1971: 8; Bailey 1979: 338ab; Boyce 1977: 11; Xa^ 1977: 53-54; EWAia II: 326-27; Kellens 1995: 44.

amudan [DaqЇqЇ] ‘to mix; to prepare’, a variant of dmddan, with -й- < -d- influenced by the labial.

amut [MunjЇk] ‘the nest of a bird of prey’, probably a Saka loanword, cf. Khot. dmatd- ‘dwelling place’ < *dhdmatd, change of stress and lengthining are to be assumed: dmatd [dmaS] > *dmat >

*dmdt > dmйи -md- > -mй- as in dmйdan]^; Vdh- ‘to sit, to dwell’, OInd. AS- ‘to sit, to remain’. Bailey 1979: 19; EWAia I: 181; Kellens 1995: 12.

an1 [RudaH] ‘that’, MPrs. (h)dn [ZK, ’n, Man. h’n]; rather to Av. ana- ‘this’ (Horn), than to anya- ‘another’ (Nyberg), that would have produced an umlaut or palatalisation (cf. Bactr. E11O, Khot. ana); cf. OInd. ana-; the vowel length remains however unexplained: the Middle and New Persian pronoun could be a combination of *ha-

and *ana-, stem conglutinations are charecteristical for pronouns; cf. Av. ha-1 ‘this’, OInd. sa ‘that’. Horn 1893: 12-13; Horn 19G1: 119; AIW: 112-14, 135-38, 1718-1727; Nyberg 1964-74: 16;

MacKenzie 1971: 8; Bailey 1979: 2a; Xale^ 1977: 59-41; KEWA III: 41G, EWAia I: 69.

an2 [Sana^] ‘intellect, grace, elegance’, seems not to be a separate word, but a metaphorical use of an1; to explain it Steingass ingeniously quoted an Italian phrase: “un certo non so che”.

and Tin [Farrux^ ‘there, then, thus’; a parallel formation to ёдйn, influenced by an1.

anrn [LF] ‘churning implement’ < *a-nai-na-, cf. XufT paymdz ‘churn, large clay jar’, Kurd. mvisk ‘butter’, Sugh., Yazg. nay- ‘to churn’, Khot. myaka-, OInd. nava-mta- ‘fresh butter’, also MPrs., Prs. pamr ‘cheese’: nay- ‘to churn’. Bailey 1979: 184b; EWAia II: 25-26.

arang1 [Asad^ ‘grief; deceit’ < *a-ranga-, cf. ranj.

V r\

aran" [Abu SukUr] ‘the elbow’, also arang [MansUr-i Seraz^, aran [Ayajri, also aras [Fird.] ‘cubit’; MPrs. aranj [’lanc], arisn [’lsn] ‘cubit’, OPrs. arasni-, cf. Kurd. em§k [Fanzov], Yidya razэn, SarЇkolЇ yorn, Osset. (arm) arin ‘cubit’, Pazand a^e, Sogd. ’’r’ync ‘cubit’ < *araenika- (Henning apud Gershevitch), Khot. *arina- [LS arnine], Av. a^ena-; Persian words come both directly from *araena- or from *araena-cЇ-, *araena-ka-; OInd. aratni- ‘elbow’, hence also artm- ‘the end of a bow, the place where the string or sinew is fastened’. Horn 1893: 5; AIW: 196; Brandenstein& Mayrhofer 1964: 1G4; Nyberg 1964-74: 29; Gershevitch 1954: 39 §247; MacKenzie 1971: 11; Bailey 1979: 8a; Xa^ 1977: 16-17; EWAia I: 1G9, 174.

aram [DaqЇqЇ] ‘quiet’, cf. MPrs. ram [l’m, Man. r’m] ‘peace’, ramisn [l’msn, Man. rmysn] ‘peace, ease, pleasure’, Osset. ramun ‘to stand, to remain’, rnomyn ‘to stop’ (< *aav-ramaya-), Sogd. r’mnd ‘always’, Khot. ram- ‘to rejoice’, Av. aramaiiat ‘er erfreute’, OInd. RAM- ‘to become quiet, peaceful, to rest’; cf. ram, ramis; Horn 1893: 5; AIW: 1511; MacKenzie 1971: 7G; Bailey 1979: 358ab; Xa^ 1977: 15; Gershevitch 1954: 5 §45; Абаев II: 374-75, IV: 17-18; EWAia II: 435-36; Kellens 1995: 56.

arastan [RUdaH] ‘to adorn, to embellish; to set in order’, praes. aray-, MPrs. arastan [’l’stn], Av. rad- ‘(sich) bereit machen’, cf. Khot. tray- ‘to save’ < *ati-raS-, OInd. RADH- ‘to achieve, to prepare, to satisfy’. Horn 1893: 4-5; 19G1: 138; AIW: 152G-21; Nyberg 1964-74: 29; MacKenzie 1971: 11; Bailey 1979: 143b-144a; Xa^ 1977: 14; KEWA III: 54, EWAia II: 448; Kellens 1995: 57.

arazis [LN I: 6G, as Vullers, to BQ] ‘bounty, charity, alms’, as Osset. arazyn ‘to direct, to construct’ < *a-raz-, v. rast, ajrazїdan. Cf. Horn 1893: 4 (‘unbelegt’!); Абаев I: 57-58; XaleqЇ 1977: 13 (‘bedune sa°hed’).

ard [Nasir Xusrav] ‘flour’, Afgh. огэ, MPrs. ard [KHM’, ’lt], Khot. ada- < *arndta- (praes. *ar-na-), cf. arr- ‘to grind’, Av. asa-A ‘gemahlen, vom Gtreide’; Var- ‘grind’, probably also in OInd. atta-‘dry’? v. as, asya, yavar. Horn 19G1: 23; H^schmann 1985: 134 (§1Gb); AIW: 239; MacKenzie 1971: 11; Bailey 1979: 17a, 23a; Xa^ 1977: 16; KEWA III: 626.

are [Fird.] ‘yes, indeed’, probably an interjectionalized adverb, to MPrs. awar [LPNM‘, Man. ’wr] ‘hither! come!’, Av. auuar ‘hinab’, OInd. (RV) avdr, avds ‘below, downwards’ (to dva). Horn 1893: 5-6, 19G1: 165; AIW: 176; Nyberg 1964-74: 36; MacKenzie 1971: 13; Xa^ 1977: 18; EWAia I: 132.

arey [Nasir Xusrav] ‘aversion; hatred’, OPrs. araika ‘schlecht, treulos, abtrannig’, OInd. aUkd- ‘falsch, unwahr (about serpents)’; cf. Sogd. ryk ‘evil, unpleasant’ and rey; Bailey postulated for these words Var- ‘to be wild’ (IE Val-) and explained therewith such words as MPrs. arak [’rk, Pazand hala], Sogd. ’’r’k, Osset. arra ‘wild, mad’ and connected them with Gk. alaivrn ‘to sweep around’, Lith. alidtis ‘be foolish, mad’ (Bailey 1961: 476). Horn 1893: 6; Branden-stein&Mayrhofer 1964: 1G5; XaleqЇ 1977: 2G-22; EWAia I: 128.

ar6y [LabiM] ‘belch’ < *a-rauya-, cf. Munji yoruya ‘eructatio’, Afgh. aryai id.(< *a-rux-s-), Khwar. wzrzy- ‘rйlpsen’ (< *uz-ruj-ya-), Khot. mjai ‘bursting, ejecting’, Av. kuruya- ‘bose Krankheit’, Vraug- ‘to emit (painfully)’: probably to OInd. ROJ- ‘to break’ (for semantics cf. Germ. erhrechen), ruj- ‘pain, illness’. Horn 1893: 5; Bartholomae 189G, II: 134; Bailey 1979: 365b; Xa^ 1977: 17-18; Schmidt 1987: 358 (following Schwyzer 1929: 113); Samadi 1986: 229; KEWA III: 64-65, EWAia II: 465.

aruydan [RudaH] ‘to be, to become angry’, probably akin to aluydan [RudaM]; could be a Soghdian borrowing, with a special semantic development, cf. Sogd. ’’rwytky’ ‘greed’, ’’rwyt- ‘to desire’ (past stem), Khot. rrauta- ‘desire’ (< *rauxtya-), Vrauk- for which ‘to please’ is a secondary meaning, the primary one being ‘to shine’ (cf. rosan): thus Mayrhofer also about OInd. ROC-. Horn 19G1: 149: ‘verlesen aus arganda’; Gershevitch 1954: 84 §539; Bailey 1979: 24a, 369b; EWAia II: 463-64.

arz6 [Nasir Xusrav] ‘desire, strong wish’, MPrs. arzog [’lcwk], Man. awarzog/y [’wrzwg], Parth. awarzog [’wrjwg] < *a-varz-ava-ka-, Khot. aursa < *a-varza-, cf. Osset. uarzyn ‘to love’, Av. vardz-

with the prefix a-: ‘jemanden durch sein Wirken herzubringen, zu gewinnen suchen’; Vvarz- ‘to work’, ‘to enchant by magic power’, ‘to love’ (‘agir’), v. varzidan; here the Ossetic verb is decisive to prefer the connection with Vvarz- to Vharg- (Henning, cf. Bailey 1967: 36-7); only late Indo-Aryan words represent *varjati: Bashkarik baj- ‘to do’ and Khowar. baMik ‘to overcome’; Sogd. Buddh. ’’prys- ‘etre lubrique, en chaleur’ (Gauthiot 1914-1929: 71, 75), Man. ’’firxsyy ‘dissoluteness’ (Gershevitch 1954: 2 §5) are not necessarily connected to arzo. Horn 19G1: 185; AIW: 1374-78; Henning 1977, 1: 372; MacKenzie 1971: 11; Bailey 1979: 48a; Абаев IV 53-54; Turner 1962-66: 66G; Kellens 1995: 51; IEW: 1168-69.

as1 [Xaqarn] ‘mill, millstone’, asya [LabM] id., Kurd. as ‘mill’, MPrs. asyah [’sy’p] ‘(water-) mill’, asyag [’sy’k] Parth. ’’s ‘milestone)’, Khwar. ’r6 ‘Mйhlstein’ (Eilers quotes NW ar ‘mill’), all to *ar-$ra-; the derivatives obviously come from *as-Їap ‘water-mill’; the disapparition of final -p preceded the addition of a -k/g- suffix; Var- ‘to grind’, cf. ard; this explanation proposed by Bailey is semantically better than Horn’s proposal to connect the ‘mill’-words to Av. asan-, asman- ‘stone’. Horn 1893: 7, 19G1: 8; Henning 1977, 2: 52; MacKenzie 1971: 13; Eilers 1974: 312; Bailey 1979: 22a; Xa^ 1977: 26-27; Benzing 1983: 77; cf. Buck 1949: 363.

as2 [Zamaxsan, also BQ] ‘ermine’, a Turkish word, cf. MTurk., Chagai as, Chuvash jos etc. Rasanen 1969-1971: 28b; Brockelmann 1928: 13; Doerfer 1963-1975, II: 57-58.

asa [Munjlk] ‘tillage, field ready for sowing’, could be traced to *ar-Sra-ka- and regarded as a rare Indo-Iranian survival specimen of IE *Var- ‘to plow’; asar [also Munjlk, after LN] would be a dialect variant; cf. Arm. arawr, Toch. AB are ‘plough’ etc., cf. IEW: 62-63. asa1 [KTmya-yi Saadat] ‘pacifying; yawning’, v. asйdan, asa.

'У c

asa [ Asjadi] ‘manner, rule; embellishment; gravity; alike’ v. san. Horn 1893, 7: 154; Xa^ 1977: 27-28.

asaydan [RudaH] ‘to prepare, to construct’ < *a-saxta-, Vsak-, cf. Khot. asa ‘kept in memory’ (< *a-saxta-), Av. a + sak1- ‘dem Ged chtnis einpr gen’ (i.e. Avestan and Khotanese have mentalized the semantics), v. saxtan, sazidan, pasayda; -yd- < -*xt- would seem to indicate East Iranian provenience: Soghdian has -s(’)yt- with different prefixes, e.g. Man. ptsyty ‘arranged’; cf. also asйyda ‘halfburnt’, which has a similar relation to soxtan. AIW: 1552-53; Gershevitch 1954: 77 §5G9; Bailey 1979: 28a.

asan [Fird.] ‘easy’, MPrs. asan [’s’n]: ‘at rest, easy, peaceful’, v. asйdan, SW Vsa- < *Vtsua- ‘to rest’ (probably *Vtsum-, cf. also OInd.

samyati ‘to be quiet’, SAM1-: an archaic alternation -*m-//-*u- ?), v. jarasp ‘cushion’ (NW); Horn (and Xaleql discusses s.v. asan the second part of compounds like xurasan, which has the meaning ‘rising’. Darmesteter 1883, II: 134; Salemann 1887: 238; Nyberg 1964-74: 31; Henning 1977, I: 24G; MacKenzie 1971: 12; Bailey 193G: 16, 1979: 185ab; Xa^ 1977: 28; EWAia II: 61G-11.

aseb [Unsun] ‘trouble, hurt’, maybe < *a-saima- (with denasalization), cf. Khot. sima ‘horrific’, Sogd. Buddh. sym ‘confused, trouble’, Av. sima- ‘Greuel, Grauen erweckend, greulich’, Vsai-; cf. OInd. simyu- ‘aggressive, strenuous; personal name of a king hostile to Indra’, si'mida- ‘female monster’ (IE *V(s)kai- ‘to trouble’, hence words like Gk. mcaio<; ‘unfavorable, left side’); v. asёma. AIW: 158G; Bailey 1979: 425b; EWAia II: 637-38.

asema [Fird.] ‘confused’, also asёvan [Munjlk], probably connected with asёh, these words and their relation resemble greatly Sogd. Buddh. symh and sym’w’k ‘terror’ Gershevitch wondered why these Soghdian words show no palatalization (* sy ): maybe they were pronounced *se or even *sai, that would bring them closer to the Persian words, which could simply be Soghdian borrowings; the suffix *-aka- must have joined *a-saima- before the supposed denasalisation, suffix -van- conceals the preceding consonant. Gershevitch 1954: 56 §3741, 165 §1G81.

asman [RudaH] ‘sky’, MPrs. asman [’sm’n], Sogd. sm’n, Khwar. ’sm, ’sym, OPrs., Av. asman-, OInd. dsman-; Horn 1893: 8; 19G1: 85; AIW: 2G7-2G8; Reichelt 1913: 23-57 (discussing the relation of the notions ‘sky’ and ‘stone’); Brandenstein&Mayrhofer 1964: 1G7; Nyberg 1964-74: 32; Gershevitch 1954: 12 §88; MacKenzie 1971: 12; EWAia I: 137-38; Xa^ 1977: 31.

astar [Unsur^ ‘lining of a garment’, Osset. ast^ id., MPrs. astar [’Tavadia S-n-S], Khwar. astir [’styr], Khot. ast^e ‘beds’ < *a-star-na-, as histar ‘cushion; bed’ to Av. upa.st r na- ‘blanket’; Vstar-‘to spread’ is connected with different prefixes (Bailey 1979: 254b-

55a), cf. OInd. STAR1-------‘to spread, to scatter’, astara-, astarana-

‘Decke, Teppich’ (Botlingk&Roth 1855-75 I: 741); Persian has a semantic specialization. Horn 1893: 7, 19G1: 171; H^schmann 1985: 7; AIW: 396; Henning 1977, 2: 489; Абаев I: 77; Bailey 1979: 27b; KEWA III: 517-18; Xa^ 1977: 3G-31.

ast an [Nasir Xusrav] ‘threshold’, also astana [Rudaki], Parth. astanag [’’st’ng] < *arda-stma-stana-(ka-) ‘put (^ standing) between columns’, cf. OPrs. ardastana- ‘window-frame, window cornice’, Av. a^da- ‘side, half’, v. also sumn and istadan. Horn 1893: 7; Henning 1977, 2: 5G2; Brandenstein&Mayrhofer 1964: 1G4;

Kent 195G: 171 (explaining arda- as ‘light’, to OPrs. ardata-‘silver’); Boyce 1977: 15; Xale^ 1977: 29-3G.

astar [Horn after de Lagarde 1884: Is. 24, 2G] ‘sin’, MPrs. astar [’st’l, Man. ’st’r]; probably a “learned” word, to Av. a + Vstar2- ‘to commit sins’, Gk. атєрєю, атєріакю ‘to rob’: there seem to be no Indo-Aryan cognates, cf. however Kati Шгэ ‘thief’. Horn 1893: 7; AIW: 1597; Walde&Pokorny II: 636; Nyberg 1964-74: 32; MacKenzie 1971: 12; Turner 1962-66: 791; Xa^ 1977: 28-29.

astm [Fird.] ‘sleeve’, also astm [BQ] and asn [Fird.]: a frequent word without cognates; it can be compared to Afgh. las^nai which is connected to las ‘hand’: then it is possible to assume *8ast-an-ya-> *$astёn > astm with a loss of the initial consonant as in Taj. dial. evar ~ Afgh. lewar OInd. devdr- ‘husband’s brother’; the length of a could be either due to vrddhi or compensatory. Cf. Розенфельд 1982: 73; EWAia 743-44.

с

asuydan [Ma rufi] ‘to burn half-way’, there is also a “participle” asujta [LN] ‘fire-brand, quenched brand’, all to suxtan, cf. asayda; -yd- < -*xt- could point to East Iranian origin, cf. Osset. suydag ‘pure’, Sogd. swyt-, Khot. s^a- ‘burnt’; -jt-/-xt- cf.juft. Horn 19G1: 7G; Henning 1977, 1: 649; Gershevitch 1954: 115 §75G; Bailey 1979: 426b-27a.

asйdan [Fird.] ‘to rest, to pacify’, praes. asayad, MPrs. asйdan [’swtn, praes. ’s’d- with an ‘inverse’ -d-]; H^schmann saw here Vsay- (OInd. say- ‘to lie, to rest’) and explained -й- referring to jarmйdan, Vma-: however threr is no labial here which could be responsible for such a change, so better to assume Indo-Ar. *Vtsus -(cf. asan) with the alternation praes. *Vtsua-ia: past partic. *t^-ta-; Horn 1893: 8; 19G1: 13G; H^schmann 1985: 7; Henning 1977, 1: 115, 126, 24G; MacKenzie 1971: 12; Bailey 1979: 185ab; Xaleqї 1977: 31-32.

as [Nasir Xusrav] ‘meal; dish’, MPrs. as [’s] < *as-ya-, cf. Khot. hvasa ‘juice from meat’ (< *hu-asyaka-), Av. asit- ‘geniessend’, Vas, OInd. AS1- ‘to eat’. Horn 1893: 8, 19G1: 87; AIW: 338; Nyberg 1964-74: 33-34; Xale^ 1977: 32-33; Bailey 1979: 5G5a; EWAia, I: 136.

asйд ‘worn out (about teeth)’, MPrs. ’swd. Henning 1977, 2: 24; cf. sujtan [LH].

asam [Fird.] ‘food, eating’, < *a-cyam-, cf. Parth. ahsamah [’hs’mg], Sogd. Buddh. ’’s’m- ‘to drink’, Khot. tsam- ‘to swallow’, Av. sama- ‘gulp’ (Kellens: SAM- ‘avaler’), OInd. CAM1- ‘to slurp’ (onomatopoetic ?); cf. also camldan. Horn 1893: 8; H^schmann

1985: 7; AIW: 17G8; Henning 1977, 2: 24; Bailey 1979: 146b; Xale^ 1977: 33-34; Boyce 1977: 6; EWAia 53G; Kellens 1995: 69.

askar [Fird.] ‘plain, apparent’, also askara, askara, all these variants attested in SN; MPrs. askarag [’’sk’l(’)k, Man. ’sq’rg]; an ancient compound: its first part is akin to Av. auuis ‘offenbar, vor Augen’, OInd. avis ‘id.’, the second component contains Vkar- (v. kardan); the same components are found in OInd. aviskara- ‘making visible, manifestation’. Horn 1893: 8; 19G1: 24; AIW: 334; Nyberg 1964-74: 34; MacKenzie 1971: 13; Xale^ 1977: 36-37; EWAia 177.

с

ask6b [Kamal Ismaїі] ‘roof’, also askoha, a variant of askoh. askoxidan [Rudaki] ‘to slip, to fall’, seems to be a denominative verb and a remnant of a rare *Vskau-g-, cf. Khot. pasMj- ‘to stir up, blow up’ < *pati-skauj-, whereas Persian *a- has the meaning of another direction of the movement, cf ajtadan; -x- could indicate that the word (*a-skauya-) is borrowed, probably from an East Iranian language, where normal -y had been devoiced in word-final position; IE Vskeu-g- is maybe attested by MEng. schokken ‘to push’ etc. Bailey 1979: 223b; IEW: 955.

asna1 [Rudaki] ‘an acquaintance’, MPrs asnag [’sn’k, Man. ’’sn’g] ‘known’ < *a-(x)sna-ka-, V(x)sna-, Vzna- (Indoar. *dzan-/*dzna- )etc., v. sinaxtan. Horn 1893: 8; Henning 1977, 1: 111; Nyberg 1964-74: 34; MacKenzie 1971: 13; Xa^ 1977: 37.

asna2 [Masud-i Sad] ‘swimming; swimmer’, also asnah [Fird.]

< *a-sna-(ka-), cf. Wax. yazn ‘inflated skin’ (Bailey derives it from

*a-sna-, Morgenstierne (1938, II: 195, 555) has another etymology), Av. a + sna- ‘to wash’; v. sina. Horn 1893: 9; AIW: 1628; Xaleqї 1977: 37-39; Bailey 1979: 466b.

as6y [Tartar!] ‘of unknown family or country’: comparable to Arm. asot, Turk. a§uk (usually a§ik, traced to Arab. aasiq ‘enamoured’, cf. IA IV: 51-56, I: 184-195), it can be derived from

*a-s(y)ava-ka- ‘wanderer, vagabond’, *s(y)av- ‘to move, to go’, v. sudan; the meaning ‘vagabond, stranger’ permits to understand the name of the famous Л$дуГanh as a hendiadys.

as6rdan [LN: Tafsm Abu-l-Futuhi Raz^ ‘to mix, to mingle’, a secondary infinitive to a praes. asdr- (with analogical vowel lengthening), cf. Khwar. hs’ry1- ‘umrnhren’, Vsar- ‘to mix’, OInd. srmdti; Samadi 1986: 24-25; v. sdndan.

asfi [Abu Sukur] ‘reconciliation’, MPrs. ashh [’styh, Man. ’’st], Av. axsti- ‘Friede, Friedensvertrag’, axsta- ‘gefriedet’, probably also OPrs. axsata- ‘unbroken’; then a- acquired its length to compensate the disappearance of the next syllable: *axsata- < *axsnta-,

*V(x)san- ‘to destroy’, OInd. KSAN1- ‘to hurt’. Horn 1893: 8, 19G1: 18G; AIW: 311; Nyberg 1964-74: 35; MacKenzie 1971: 13; Xale^ 1977: 34; EWAia 423.

asuftan [Fird.] ‘to disturb or to be disturbed; to become confounded’, praes. asoh-, Bal. sujay ‘to thresh; to be angry’ MPrs. asoh [’swp, Parth. ’’swh] ‘disturbance, turmoil’ (to praes. *a-xsauha-: past partic. *d-xsuj-ta-), Khot. dksuv- ‘to start’, Av. xsaoh- ‘in Aufregung geraten’ (Kellens: ‘fremir’), OInd. KSOBH- ‘to tremble, to become agitated’; cf. gusujtan, sejtan. Horn 1893: 8, 19G1: 136; H^schmann 1985: 7, 184; AIW: 539-542; Nyberg 1964-74: 34-35; Henning 1977, 1: 91; MacKenzie 1971: 13; Bailey 1979: 15b; XaleqЇ 1977: 34-36; EWAia 44G; Kellens 1995: 17.

asyan [Fird.] ‘nest, lair’, also asydna [LabM], MPrs. dsyan(ag) [’syd’n(k), Man. ’hy’ng]; the older etymology (Noldeke apud Horn, < *a-sdyana-, cf. Av. a + Vsay- ‘to rest’, OInd. sdye ‘to lie’, Henning had a similar proposal: *d0^ydna-, with IE *k > Indo-Ar. *ts > SW *0) does not take into account MPrs. -d- and requires the syncope of a syllable which should have stress according to rules established by Gauthiot and Meillet; Stackelberg found a more elegant explanation deriving both asyan and Osset. axston (id.) from *dxsa-ddna-, a compound, the first part of which is *a-xsi- (?), for the second component cf. dan ‘receptacle’ (the Osset. Digor verb azun ‘to be kind to smb. etc.’ does not necessarily belong to this word family). Bartholomae 189G, 2: 1G2; Horn 1893: 9; AIW: 1571; Henning 1977, I: 32G; MacKenzie 1971: 13; Xa^ 1977: 39-4G; KEWA III: 3G3; Абаев I: 91-92.

atas [RudaH] ‘fire’, MPrs. ataxs [’ths], a “mot savant” borrowed from Av. NS atars, the regular phonetic result of Proto-Iranian

*atar- is dSar; cf. hal. Horn 1893: 3; 19G1: 24; AIW: 312; IEW: 69; Nyberg 1964-74: 35; MacKenzie 1971: 13; Xa^ 1977: 7-1G.

avand1 [LF] ‘vessel’, MPrs. apomand ‘water vessel’, Av. djant-‘wasserreich’ (< *dp-vant-), cf. OInd. apavant- ‘watery’, and dh ‘water’. AIW: 33G.

avand2 [Fird.] ‘argument, proof’ to *a-panda- ‘the way hither (to persuade)’, v.pand ‘advice’.

avang [RudaH] ‘a line on which clothes or bunches of grapes are hung up; anything susupended’, also avand3), traditionally connected to dvextan (e.g., XaleqЇ 1977: 68): an irregular vowel change is to be assumed, since *aving (< *a-vig-na- or to a nasal praesent

*a-viNga-) would rather be expected as a nominal derivate from from avextan; LN (II: 2G9) advances a simpler proposition starting

with the form avand and explaining it as *a-handa-, to hand- : hastan; cf. aurand. Xaleql 1977: 68.

avar1 [Farruxl] ‘certainty’, probably a dialectal simplification of

*avard, then comparable to MPrs. a-wardag [’wlt’k] ‘undeviating’ (MacKenzie 1971: 13), cf. gardJdan; the length of the initial a- could be due to a rhyme to havar.

avar2 [Vullers: BQ] ‘ugly, deformed’, if ‘twisted’, then probably connected to Av. var3- ‘(se) vertere’ (Kellens: VAR- ‘envelopper’), AIW: 1362-63; Kellens 1995: 5G.

avardan [Unsuri] ‘to bring’, praes. avar-, shortened ar-, intensified biyar; a secondary past base avandan is also attested, to which the meaning ‘to attack’ is given (BQ): however LN (I 2G8) comments that there are no examples for it: MPrs. awurdan [YHYTYWN-tn, Man. ’’wrd], Sogd. ’’fir-, Av. a- + Vhar1- ‘etwas herzunnngen, herbeihoien’; v. hurdan. Horn 1893: 13-14, 19G1: 24, 3G, 49; AIW: 938; Nyberg 1964-74: 39; Gershevitch 1954: 84 §54G; MacKenzie 1971: 14^ Xaleql 1977: 65; Samadi 1986.

avan [Vuliers: FS] ‘echo’, also ava, could be an interjection, out could also be *a-vaxa-, Vvak- ‘to speak’, cf. Khot. *ava ‘parable’ (the attested form is LS avya, Bailey 1979: 26a), MPrs. Man. awag [’’w’g] v. avaz. H^schmann 1985: 269; Henning 1977, I: 4G8; Nyberg 1964-74: 73; Boyce 1977: 4.

avam [Vuliers: FS] ‘debt’, also avam lAsraru-t-Tawhid], vam [Fird.], jam [Nasir Xusrav, a borrowing from an unattested East Iranian idiom?]; MPrs. aham [’p’m], Parth. ’h’myh; Horn and Mbschmann concentrated on refuting Darmesteter’s explanation by means of Vam- (Darmesteter 1883, I: 75) to Lat. ahemptum, Lith. imu), since the meaning of this root is ‘to take’: some kind of semantic development like ‘debt’ ^ ‘what is to be taken away’ cannot be completely excluded; Nyberg proposed a convincing etymology: *apanma- ‘that what a lender has to obtain from the borrower’, a middle part, from Vap- ‘to reach, to overtake’, v. yajtan; Bailey discussed the word connecting it to Khot. pїha-‘price’, Osset. jidyn ‘to pay’ and postulating a root ‘to pay’ with the ablaut Vpai-, VpЇ-, Vpa-: then (a)vam < *(a)-pa-(m)na-; the sound patterns or Bailey’s and Nyberg’s etymologies practically are the same, the can be ‘united’ by assuming a root alternation *Vap- / *Vpa- with *-Ї- as an enlargement. Horn 1893: 3G-31, 19G1: 2G, 22, 79; H^schmann 1985: 19; AIW 7G-72; Nyberg 1964-74: 22; MacKenzie 1971: 1; Bailey 1979: 242a; cf. Абаев I 473-74; EWAia 167.

avam2 [LN II 2GG] ‘colour’, also avam [Vullers 1855-64: I 139, ex BQ] < *a-ha-ma-, to Vha- ‘to shine’, verifying the explanation of

ajtah by proving the root with the same suffix, cf. also jam, ham and Parth. ’h’myh (Henning 1977, I: 56G).

avar1 [LN IV 472] ‘warmth, heat’ was given an Iranian etymology (compared with var ‘heat’ (BQ), uvar(a) id., avar (Wollaston), vanx ‘caido’ (Gazophyl.), cf. Arm. varem ‘zrnde an’, H^schmann 1897: 494, № 386; Horn 19G1: 62); but the word is an (frequently unrecognized) borrowing from Arabic uwaru ‘ardeur au feu, violence de la chaieur, flamme’ (Biberstein&Kazimirski 186G, I: 68).

avar2 [VR] ‘vagrant, outcast’, also avara [Fird.] < *a-hara(-ka)-, metaphorically to Av. Vhar2- ‘sich rasch bewegen (von wind und wasser)’. OInd. BHAR1- id., cf. RV bhurana- ‘runrig, bewegiich’, bMmi- ‘eifervoll, wild’ etc: another meaning of this word — ‘unjustice’ is also attested for MPrs. aparay (Henning 1977, I: 371). Horn 1893, 13; H^schmann 1985: 9: AIW: 943; Xaleqї 1977: 6164; EWAia II: 251-52.

avar3 [Nasir Xusrav] ‘account-book, register’, also avara, either dialect variants of amar or < *ahi-varda-, SW correspondence to *ahi-varza-, Indo-Ir. Vvardz- (v. va^dan): so Nyberg 1964-74: 73.

avaz [Nasir Xusravj ‘voice’, also ava, avah, MPrs. avaz [’p’c] <

*a-vaca-, cf. Av. a-vac- ‘heranrufen, anrufen’, Vvak-, OInd. VAC- ‘to say, to speak’. Horn 1893: 13: 19G1: 49; AIW: 1331; Nyberg 196474: 73; Henning 1977, I: 4G8; MacKenzie 1971: 13; Xale^ 1977: 64-65; EWAia II: 489-9G; Kellens 1995: 48-49.

aves [Nasir Xusrav] ‘marjoram, oregano’, also avёsa, avёsam, avёsan, avёsana < *a-vaisa- and suffixes; cf. hёsa, which has noteworthy cognates: Sogd. Buddh. wysh, Yaghn. wes, ways ‘herb, verdure, vegetables’. Benveniste 1929: 237: Bailey 1979: 291a.

avextan [LabiM] ‘to hang, to suspend’, praes. avёz-, avang and avangan ‘hanging, suspended’ are usually quoted as derived from this verb with -i- alter -v-. though LN (I: 214-15) has -a-vocalization, which would require a more sophisticated phonetic explanation; Osset. awynjyn, MPrs. awЇxtan [Farahvasr FPP 12] < *a-vaij-aya, *a-viNj- ‘to throw upwards, to suspend’, cf. Av. vaёg-‘to throw’, OInd. VEJ- ‘to rise’; cf. hёxtan. Horn 1893: 14; 19G1: 127, 134; mbschmann 1985: 1G; AIW: 1313; Xa^ 1977: 65-68; Samadi 1986; Bailey 1979: 398ab; EWAia II: 577-78;

axal [Farmx^ ‘any kind of rubbish’, also axar; probably a very old and popular borrowing from Arab. axlat, pl. of xilt ‘melange, chose qui se mele a une autre’ (Biberstein-Kazimirsky 186G, I: 615); for the phonetic adaptation an intermediate form *axalt is to be assumed; but cf. also ayardan.

axiac/j [Abu Sukur] ‘opposite, contrary’, also ax^k, v. ах$ё/.

axtan [Asad!] ‘to draw out’, an abbreviation of a-hlxtan. cf. hixtan and ahaji Їdan, MPrs. ahixtan [’hhtn, Man. ’hxtn]. Horn 19G1: 96; Nyberg. 1964: 1G; MacKenzie 1971: 6.

axund [Algar (1984: 731) indicates that “the word first enters currency in the Timurid period”] ‘theologian, preacher’ < *a-xvand, -the second component being either related to xvandan (Pйrdavйd apud Mom BQ) or abbreviated xudavand (Radloff and Dehxoda considered a- to be abridged aya); less probable to derive axйnd from Turk. anyйn ‘a pre-Islamic Nestorian priest’ (also arxun, from gr. apxwv, IA, I: 228); also axйn, axavand [Shakespear, Richardson]; Algar, ibid. 731-32; cf. Horn 1893: 3; XaleqЇ 1977: 1G and EI I: 249.

axur [Fird.] ‘stable, stall’, Kurd. ajir ‘Krippe, Futtertrog, Fresstrog’ (Omar 1992: 3; Socin 1898-19G1: 261), MPrs. axwarr [’hivl], cf. Sogd. ’’ywyr- ‘to eat’, Av. avo.xva^na- ‘Tranke’ ^ *‘Wasser-genuss bietend’; the Avestan word can be related to the other words only by assuming phonetic irregularities (*ava- > a-), otherwise it is possible to reconstruct *a-xvarna- as the source of axur and its cognates; v. xurdan. Horn 1893: 4; Hubschmann 1985: 5-6; AIW: 357; Henning 1977, II: 52; Nyberg 1964-74: 39; MacKenzie 1971: 14; Bailey 1943; Xaleqi 1977: 1G.

ayasa [BQ] ‘spy, flatterer’, also ayistina, ayisna [BQ], seems to be an Indian borrowing (if not simply adopted by BQ), ultimately connected to OInd. adhi-sthayaka- ^ber etw. stehend, etw. beaufsichtigend’, Botlingk 1855, I: 154; cf. also BHS adhisthanika ‘government men’, Edgerton 1953: 95; cf. ayasa. Henning 1977, I: 83, 131.

ayam [Fiyam] ‘easiness’, from ayan ‘comer; anything that presents itself readily to the mind or comes easily to hand’, participial derivates from ay-, present base to amadan.

ayift [Daqiq^ ‘wish, need’, also ayujt, MPrs. ayajt [’dypt, Man. ’’ypt] ‘boon, favour, gift’, Av. aiiapta- ‘guristiger Erfolg, Gluck; Almosen’, from *ahi-ap-ta- (Vap-) with labial dissimilation (as Khwar. yj- ‘erreichen, emholen, finden’ < *ayaja- < *ahi-aja-, Samadi 1986: 256-57), cf. Av. avi ap- ‘einholen’, Vap- ‘atteindre’; v. yajtan. AIW: 71, 332-33; Nyberg 1964-74: 4G; MacKenzie 1971: 15; Kellens 1995: 11-12.

aym [RйdakЇ] ‘manner, custom, rite; common law’, also aylna [VR], ayina [Daq^i]; the (probably secondary) meaning ‘beauty, ornamentation’ is attested for a more archaic form aSln [Nasir Xusrav, Sozarn]; MPrs. ёwёn(ag) [’dwyn(k), Man. ’ywyn(g)], Parth. aвSёn ‘custom, way’ < *ahi-dayana(-ka)-, Vdai- ‘to see’, cf. dldan. Horn 1893: 15-16; H^schmann 1985: 11; Henning 1977, I: 559, II:

2G; Nyberg 1964-74: 12; MacKenzie 1971: 31; Xaleq 1977: 78-82; Boyce 1977: 5.

ayma [Nasir Xusrav] ‘mirror’, also ayina; Bal. aden, adenay [Gibertson 1925, II: 426], Osset. aydan, MPrs. ёwёnag [’dwynk], Parth. ’’dyng, Sogd. ’’d’yn’k, Khot. ayana- (LS atina) - all to *a-day(a)na(-ka)-, Vdai- ‘to see’, cf. didan. Horn 19G1: 45; H^schmann 1985: 11-12; Henning 1977, I: 559; Абаев I: 11; MacKenzie 1971: 31; Bailey 1979: 19b; Xa^ 1977: 82-83.

az [Fird.] ‘desire, avarice, lust’, frequently in compounds azmand, azvar/azй^ MPrs. az [’c, Man. ’’z] ‘greed, lust’, Sogd. ”z ‘greed’, Av. azi- ‘Gier, Begierde’; Bartholome (1895: 43) considered this word to contain a ‘Hochstufe’ as compared to the verb iziieiti ‘requires’ with a ‘Tiefstufe’ (cf. OInd. EH- ‘to desire’ or OInd. aji-‘competition’, Schmeja 1976: 1G1). Horn 1893: 6; AIW: 343; Nyberg 1964-74: 41; Gershevitch 1954: 2 §4; MacKenzie 1971: 15; Xa^ 1977: 22-23; EWAia 16G, 273.

azadan [Manucihn] ‘pierced; coloured’, v. azadan. azar [BQ] ‘trouble, grief; cross-tempered’, cf. azar, azardan. azardan [Abu Sukur] ‘to injure, to trouble, to aggravate’, also azardan, azurdan; the present base azar- produced already in MP a secondary past azard, the old past base with the reflex of Indo-Ir. *-r- has a variety of vocalisations: -ar-, -ur-, -ir- (in Man.); MPrs. azardan [’cltn, Man. ’’zyrdn], Sogd. ’’z’r, ’’z’yrt ‘to inflict’, Av. a zar- ‘erz^nen’, an-azardta- ‘nicht erzumt’, to Vzar1- ‘irriter’ (Kellens 1995: 67-68), also Afgh. zordl ‘to vex, to coerce’ (<*zaraya-), Khot. ysara, ysurra ‘anger, hate’ (<*zr-nu-), OPrs. darzanaya ‘im Zorne’, cf. OInd. hrmte ‘to be angry’, Indo-Ir. *dzhar-. Horn 19G1: 141; Horn 1893: 6; H^schmann 1985: 6; AIW: 125, 1669-7G; Nyberg 1964-74: 41; Brandenstein&Mayrhofer 1964: 115; Gerschevitch 1954: 84 §541; MacKenzie 1971: 15; Bailey 1979: 35Ga, 354a; KEWA III: 6G4.

azarm [Avhad^ ‘pain, wrath, shame; dignity’, also azar [Nasir Xusrav], to azardan; MPrs. azarm [’clm, Man. ’’zrm] ‘harm, injury; honour, respect’, Sogd. ’’zrm ‘harm’, zrm zrmh ‘distress’: it seems that only Persian and Sogdian have here the suffix *-ma(n)-: that would probably indicate that at least the words with the “negative” meaning are Sogdian borrowings. Horn 1893: 6; Henning 1977, I: 99 (azar), 467; Gershevitch 1954: 166 § 1G93; MacKenzie 1971: 15; Xaleqi 1977: 24-26.

azax [Kisa^] ‘wart, twig’, also azax, azax, zax, azuy, azanj etc., Khwar. ’zx ‘Warze’, all to *(a)-zaya- < *(a)-znga-: cf. also Kurd. ёzimk ‘Ekzem im Kindersalter’ (Omar 1992: 199); by assuming a

more general meaning of ‘something attached to’ these words can be compared to Osset. zang, MPrs. zang [zng], Av. zanga-, OInd. jangha- ‘ankle, shank’, also jamhas- ‘wing’. MacKenzie 1971: 98; Benzing 1983: 134; Абаев 1958-90, IV: 297; EWAia I: 562, 564.

azad [Fird.] ‘free-born, noble’, MPrs. azad [’c’t, Man. ”z’d], Sogd. ’’z’t, Khot. aysaza-, Av. a-za-ta-; Vzan-, v. zadan; the semantics of what literally is ‘born hither’ was explained by Bailey as ‘born into the noble house, noble family’. Horn 1893: 6, 1901: 21; AIW: 343; Benveniste 1929: 212; Henning 1977, II: 23; Nyberg 1964-74: 41-42; MacKenzie 1971: 15; Bailey 1979: 20a-21b; Xaleql 1977: 23-24.

azfandak [AsadI] ‘rainbow’, also azfandak, azfanak, the unusual cluster -zf-, -zf- seems to signalize a morphological juncture in a compound: its first component could have a root akin to OInd. ANC-‘to bend, to curve’ (EWAia I: 52, in Iranian attested e.g., in Av. aka-‘hook’) and be a word for the bow: the meaning ‘bow’ for *az/*az is almost obligatorily predicted by the second component, which is identical to Khwar. fiynd’k ‘Lord’ (Amarat&MacKenzie 1990: 107, considered to be a derivative of QM fiynd, MA fynd ‘husband’, which is explained by connecting it to Av. fsuyant-), — ‘rainbow’ is frequently considered as a bow of a deity, cf. Arab. Qaws Allah, Qaws Rasul Allah, Qaws Qazf, as well as the general idea of including the rainbow among supernatural phenomena - «a6ar al-ulwiyya» (EI, IV: 803-805). azln, v. aSTn, ayin.

azmudan [Fird.] ‘to try, to prove’, praes. azma-, MPrs. azmudan, uzmudan [’(w)zmwtn, praes. ’(w)zm’d-], Sogd. Chr. zm’y-; Nyberg assumes *avis-may- as the source or these verbs and postulates different contractions for NP (*auzma-, a syncope) and BP (*ozma-), the root being Vma- ‘to measure’; Sogdian has a different type of contraction or simply the prefix *uz-; v. amadan, paimudan. Horn 1893: 6, 1901: 129; AIW: 1165-66; Nyberg 1964-74: 147; MacKenzie 1971: 16, 85; Xaleql 1977: 26-27; Gershevitch 1985: 262.

azux [FS] ‘a rotten and empty nut’: could be a vocalisation variant of azax, the meaning could be derived from ‘wart’.

azvar ‘avaricious, lewd’, also azar, derivatives of az. Horn 1901:

32.

azadan [Fird.] ‘to sew, to pierce’, also ajadan, ajidan, azidan, praes. azin-, MPrs. Z. aznay-, MPrs. T. abzen- [’bzyn] ‘to sew’, abzin [’bcyrc] ‘cloth, material’, Khwar. bcn2- ‘to mend, to patch’, Khot. aca ‘she sew’, all to Vcay- ‘to cut, to pierce, to sew’ with different prefixes (NPrs., MPrs., Khot. *a-, MPrs. *abi-, Khwar. *pati-), cf.

OInd. kinasa- ‘ploughman’, BHS cimara- ‘metal: iron or copper’; cf. also zana ‘point of the needle’. Horn 1901: 128; Geiger 1938: 214; Henning 1977, II: 18, 350; Boyce 1977: 8; Bailley 1955: 67-69, 1979: 1; Samadi 1986: 14; EWAia?

azang [FarruxI] ‘wrinkle’, also ajing [FZT] < *a-cina-ka-‘upheaping (of skin)’, cf. cm ‘id’. and cidan ‘to gather, to heap up’.

azix [BQ] ‘gummy exudations from the eyes’, the same word family as azax, azux. Cf. Horn 1901: 182.

azlr [Fird.] ‘intelligent’ < a-ciOra-, cf. Av. ciOra1- ‘(1c) Vision, Erscheinung’ (AIW: 586), v. cihr, cihra. Horn 1901: 92.
