Abstract

The evidence of Sanskrit sāra- 'firmness, strength, power' for an anit-root *ser- is uncertain, cf. Skt. cāra-, jāna-, tārá-. Then, in spite of Hamp's doubts (Glotta 64, 1986, 256), I would derive Greek ϱώμη 'bodily strength, strength, might, force' and ϱώσις 'a strengthening; encouragement, confirmation' from *srh₃-meh₂ and *srh₃-ti- respectively.
