Grammatical Data
Note
Etymology unclear. "The fact that Lat. taurus did not undergo metathesis like parvus and nervus suggests that it is a loanword" (Beekes, citing De Vaan). "There is no cognate in IIr. or Tocharian, whereas there are Semitic words for 'bull' which are conspicuously similar. Hence, it may have been an early loanword of the form *tauro- into the western IE languages" (De Vaan). , Further etymology uncertain: "the fact that Lat. taurus did not undergo metathesis like parvus and nervus suggests that it is a loanword" (RB, citing MDV).
