Proto-Germanic

Etymology

Uncertain. Often explained as derived from the Proto-Indo-European root *d?eg- ("to burn"), but the loss of the labialization would be irregular; *dawaz would be expected. Kroonen posits instead a root *d?e- ("day"), from which he says a heteroclitic noun *d?-r/n- ("day") is also derived, the source of Proto-Germanic *d?gera-/*d?gena- (see *d?g-) and Proto-Indo-Iranian *aj?-r/n- (from which Sanskrit ? (ahar)) with irregular loss of the initial consonant, possibly in the zero grade.[1]
