ArabicEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Semitic *šinn- (tooth), the source of سن(sinn). The association of "tooth" with this letter was the result of folk etymology and based on the corresponding Phoenician letter, 𐤔(š), having a shape resembling a row of pointed teeth. The letter originally depicted a composite bow, which usually has the tips curving away from the archer when unstrung.[1][2]

Related to Classical Syriac ܫ‎, Hebrew ש‎‎, Phoenician 𐤔(š), Aramaic ܫ‎. More at Shin.
