词源(Etymology)

From Middle English erthe, from Old English eorþe (earth, ground, soil, dry land), from Proto-Germanic *erþō (earth, ground, soil) (compare West Frisian ierde, Low German Eerd, Dutch aarde, Dutch Low Saxon eerde, German Erde, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian jord), related to *erwô (earth) (compare Old High German ero, perhaps Old Norse jǫrfi), from Proto-Indo-European *h₁er- (compare Ancient Greek *ἔρα (*éra) in ἔραζε (éraze, on the ground), perhaps Tocharian B yare (gravel).

Probably unrelated, and of unknown etymology, is Old Armenian երկիր (erkir, earth). Likewise, the phonologically similar Proto-Semitic *ʔarṣ́- – whence Arabic أَرْض(ʾarḍ), Hebrew אֶרֶץ(ʾereṣ) – is probably not related.
