Etymology

From Middle Anrish kaur, from Old Anrish karr, from Proto-Germanic *karalaz ("young man")

Pronunciation

(Anrish) IPA: /ˈkau̯r/

Noun

caur (runic:‧ᚳᛆᚢᚱ‧⋮‧ᚳᚭᚢᚱ‧)

  1. A title and social role adopted by an adult in Anrish society; (approximately) a man, a gentleman

Usage notes

The Anrish do not assign gender based on biological sex, but rather the ternary role deliberately adopted by a member of society at their coming of age. Thus, the Anrish concept of caur does not strictly refer to male sex and gender as does the term "man" in other societies.
