Notes
Citation: Chantraine, Pierre. 1968-1980. Dictionnaire étymologique de la langue grec. Paris: ... Pages: View S.v. ἦμαρ. The earlier consonant stem ἦμαρ found in Mycenaean Greek and Homer was replaced by Attic-Ionic ἡμέρα, which had been remodelled as a feminine ā-stem noun. The aspiration found in the Attic form only (West Greek, Arcadian, Lesbian, etc. ἀμέρα) usually considered to be analogical on the basis of ἑσπέρα 'evening'.
Citation: Beekes, Robert. 2010. Etymological Dictionary of Greek. Leiden: Brill. Pages: View Reconstructs for ἦμαρ (on the basis of which Attic ἡμέρα was created) PIE *Heh₂mer-. The Armenian form awr reflects a form *amōr, which might possibly be found in the Mycenaean attestation of a-mo-ra-ma /āmōr-āmar/ 'day after day'.
