Etymology 1Edit

This etymology is missing or incomplete. Please add to it, or discuss it at the Etymology scriptorium.
Particularly: “I can't find this word in Cham (or other Chamic languages), weird. In 4.650 từ Việt - Chăm thông dụng, the Cham entry is dana, which is clearly unrelated (there's no entry in Cham-Vietnamese-English-Japanese Vocabulary), Rade êƀư is also unrelated.”

Likely from Austronesian. Compare Malay ketapang.

NounEdit

(classifier cây) bàng ()

  1. the Malabar almond (Terminalia catappa)
