Particularly: “There're some intriguing Trans-Himalayan comparanda, most notably Tibetan ཁྱབ (khyab, to become widespread, to pervade, to fill, to cover) (its cognate Chinese (OC *[k]ˤap-s) is certainly not the source), but then the iconicity of this word shape and its spread all over the language families in the region makes it hard to be sure.”
