N. faur n. “beach, shore” (Category: Shore, Beach)

⚠️N. faur, n. “beach, shore” (Category: Shore, Beach)
S. falas “beach, shore, strand, surf(line)”

A word for “beach, shore” in The Etymologies of the 1930s from the root ᴹ√SPAR² “strew, spread, ?scatter” (EtyAC/SPAR²). The status of this word is uncertain, as its root conflicts with ᴹ√SPAR¹ “hunt, pursue” and other beach words appeared under ᴹ√PHAL “foam”. Derivatives of the latter root are probably to be preferred.
