M.E., from O.Fr. propre, from L. proprius "one's own."
Saré "pure; principal."
Fr.: distance propre
A distance between two nearby events in the frame in which they occur at the same time. It is the distance measured by a ruler at the time of observation. Hence, for a cosmological time t, Dproper = DC . a(t), where DC is the → comoving distance, and a(t) is the → scale factor. In the present epoch a = a(tobs) = 1, and Dproper = DC.
Fr.: masse propre
Same as → rest mass.
Fr.: mouvement propre
The apparent motion of a star across the sky (not including a star's parallax), arising from the star's velocity through space with respect to the Sun. Proper motion is usually tabulated in star catalogs as changes in right ascension and declination per year or century. See also: → proper motion distance.
proper motion distance

Fr.: distance mouvement propre
The distance derived from the → proper motion of an object. If an object has a known → transverse velocity u, and has an observed angular motion of dθ/dt, then the proper motion distance is defined as: d = u/(dθ/dt).
Fr.: sous-ensemble propre
Of two sets A and B, the set A if it is contained in B (A ⊂ B) but is not equal to B (A ≠ B).
zamân-e saré (#)
Fr.: temps propre
In general relativity, the time as measured on a clock that travels with the observer in the same system. An accelerated clock will measure shorter time intervals between events than a non-accelerated clock between the same events. → twin paradox.

From M.E. propriete "ownership, something owned, one's own nature," from M.Fr. propriété, from L. proprietas "ownership, property, propriety," literally "special character," noun of quality from proprius "one's own, special."
Dârâk "thing owned," from dâr present stem of dâštan "to have, to possess" + -âk (on the model of xorâk, pušâk, kâvâk). The first element dâštan, from Mid.Pers. dâštan, O.Pers./Av. root dar- "to hold, keep back, maintain, keep in mind;" Skt. dhr- "to to hold, keep, preserve," dharma- "law;" Gk. thronos "elevated seat, throne;" L. firmus "firm, stable;" Lith. daryti "to make;" PIE *dher- "to hold, support."
