Ancient Greek

Alternative forms


Unknown; possibly loaned from a Pre-Greek substrate or other regional language. Has been tentatively and inconclusively compared with (kháos, "empty space, abyss, chasm") as well as (khaté?, "to lack, miss, need, desire"); Beekes dismisses these connections as unfounded. No apparent cognates outside of Greek.

Beekes however compares ? (kh?ra, "widow"), assuming common derivation from the Proto-Indo-European root *eh?- ("to leave behind"), which would in fact make it related to (khaté?).
