(40) More probable is a derivation from dirgha, long, far, and ma (from ma) measuring, where with the meaning in Sundanese corresponds ; Jav. drigama or dirgama (see Gericke) , means to deny, to declare oneself faultless: also this meaning might be perhaps elicited from dirghama, but is much farther off, than the meaning attached to derigama in Sundanese.
