1. PGm. *irha- m. ‘he-goat’< proto-form. *irḱ-o- 2. PCelt. *yorko- ‘roebuck’ < PIE. *(H)yorko- 'goat' (RM) 3. Gr. δόρξ, ζόρξ, Hsch. ἴορκες, ἴυρκες (pl.) 'kind of deer, roe, gazelle' < *iorḱ-(?) (GK) 4. Arm. ors 'hunt, game' < *iorḱ-o- (GK) 5. Lat. hircus, ircus m. 'billy-goat' < *irḱ-(?). (GK) “Also cf. OHG ir(a)h 'buck leather', MLG er(e)ch, errich n. 'tanned leather'. All forms point to PGm. *irha-. This form has a close match in the o-grade formation Arm. ors (Martirosyan 2009: 544-5) and W iwrch < *iork-o- (with raising before -rk-, cf. Schrijver 1995: 61). The variation of Gr. δόρξ, ζόρξ, ἴόρξ and Lat. hircus, ircus is unexplained.” (GK) IEW
