ن ق ع

ArabicEdit

EtymologyEdit

The meaning of “riving” is original, reconstructible for Proto-West Semitic, whence meanings of landforms have developed, then in Arabic specifically crevasses filled with water encountered by desert-dwellers. The meanings of vociferation are separate, paralleling نَقَّ(naqqa, to croak), نَعَقَ(naʿaqa, to caw, to bleat, to croak, to hoot), قَعْقَعَ(qaʿqaʿa, to clatter).

RootEdit

ن ق ع (n-q-ʿ)

  1. related to water stagnation
