ArabicEdit

EtymologyEdit

Synchronically analyzable as derived from the active participle of تَجَرَ(tajara, to trade, to conduct commerce) from the root ت ج ر(t-j-r), and the original is presumably a borrowing of the noun of Classical Syriac ܬܓܪܐ(taggārā) or a dialectal form of it with different vocalization, ultimately through a *tangār from Akkadian 𒁮𒃼 (tamkārum, trader) derived from the root which is in م ك ر(m-k-r) related to scheming, whereby the verb is denominative, and the singular form of the Arabic noun bearing the form of an active participle has then been innovated in Arabic, other derivations under the root following suit to these new terms.
