Грохот

Русская речь. 2013. № 3. С. 123-127.
Васильева И.В.

This paper proposes a new etymology for Proto-Slavic *grochotъ. Regarding it as an onomatopoeic formation, one can easily overlook implications of its earliest sense connected with grain processing. Thus *grochotъ  has ultimately developed from pie. *gher- ‘to rub; to grind’. The paper provides an account for its morphological composition and meaning.
