EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Semitic, from Proto-Afro-Asiatic *laḥam-(food). Cognate with Aramaic לַחְמָא(laḥmā), Classical Syriac ܠܚܡܐ(laḥmā), Hebrew לֶחֶם(léḥem), all “bread”. The semantic development in Arabic is due to the different agriculture and diet of the Arabian peninsula vis-à-vis the Fertile Crescent.
