Lemizh / English dictionary
to make harpies (also the constellation spanning Scutum and parts of Sagittarius and Ophiuchus; see appendix, Constellations)
< NLem xarpU‑a, academic loan of
< Koi Ἅρπυι‑α, of unknown origin
The LMLem word was xàrpU‑yr, which would have given NLem **xarp‑a, homonymous with the word for ‘hook’. Therefore the word was re-made from the Koi.
