An unglossed root in The Etymologies of the 1930s with various derivative “wolf” words like ᴹQ. narmo and N. garaf (Ety/ÑGAR(A)M). It replaced a rejected root ᴹ√ƷARAM of the same meaning (Ety/ƷARAM). Unlike other wolf words, this root seems to be more neutral, without the “evil” connotations of words like S. gaur “werewolf”.
