DOOR

Etymology of door.

The word DOOR derives from the Greek word θύρα (thyra; door) by changing θ into d.
From the same word θύρα (thyra; door) and its Aeolic form φύρα (fyra) derives the Latin foris (door) and fora (out of doors) and through it the English forth.

In modern Greek
a) θύρα: door, gate [thyra]
β) θυρεός: escutcheon [thyreos]
γ) θυροειδής: thyroid [thyroidis]

Η λέξη DOOR (θύρα, πόρτα) προέρχεται από την ελληνική λέξη θύρα

There is also the germanic türe that might link the two?
