EtymologyEdit

Uncertain etymology, previous comparisons to an Akkadian source have been depreciated as uninformed readings; compare Hebrew חַרְדָּל(ḥardal), Jewish Palestinian Aramaic חרדלא(ḥardlā), Jewish Babylonian Aramaic חַרְדְּלָא(ḥardlā), Classical Syriac ܚܪܕܠܐ(ḥardlā), and potentially Akkadian 𒄷𒊏𒁺 (/ḫurādu/, unidentified aromatic plant possibly in reference to mustard seeds; aromatic seed or spice mix, literally pebbles, little stones); perhaps connected ultimately to Proto-Semitic *ḥaraθ- (to sow, to plant seeds, to till, to plow, to cultivate) or Sumerian 𒌑𒄯𒄯 (/ḫarḫar/, unidentified plant yielding seeds used as a spice) of uncertain provenance.
