Re: [cybalist] Hamp and his dog
- Even more interesting is that Paraveredus is actually a Celtic word in origin - Para "beyond/spare" (borrowed from Greek) + Uo-"down/under" [PIE *upo]+ Re(i)d-os "ride" [PIE *reidh-]. Ueredos [*Uoreidos] is used with out Para- as well, meaning simply "horse."-C GwinnOne more example of a familiar animal that recently changed its name: the German word for horse is Pferd, which was borrowed from Latin paraveredus in the 6th century AD.There is written evidence for this. The English word palfrey comes from the same Latin word.
