S. erin* ?* “on the ... day” (Category: Day)

- S. erin,
*?*“on the ... day” (Category: Day)

Carl Hostetter suggested (VT31/26) that this form is some derivative of the root ᴹ√*AR¹* “day” while David Salo suggested it is a prepositional form combining [N.] *or* “above” with the definite article, perhaps with the sense “[up]on the”. Neither explanation seems especially compelling,
but I can’t think of a better one.
