Dear colleagues,

This query is about the three Farsi forms:

(1) _ham_ "also"
(2) _hame_ "all"
(3) _har_ "every"

and their cognates in other Iranian and Turkic languages.

My questions:

(a) What are the etymologies of these forms?  Are any of them
etymologically related?
(b) Is it possible to argue that any of them are synchronically related,
in Farsi or in any other modern language?
