S. parth n. “field, enclosed grassland, sward” (Category: Plain, Field)
An element in the names S. Parth Celebrant “Field of Celebrant” and S. Parth Galen “Green Sward”, variously translated “field, enclosed grassland” (UT/260) or “sward” = “*field of short grass” (RC/349). Its etymology is unclear: it might be a derivative of √PAR “arrange”. It may also be a later iteration of N. pathw “level place, sward” < ᴹ√PATH, and is perhaps derived from *path-re with metathesis to parth(e).
