reżaħ

MalteseEdit

EtymologyEdit

Root
r-ż-ħ

Possibly from Arabic رَزَحَ(razaḥa, to be exhausted, emaciated, to sink to the ground). The Arabic verb was used especially of overstrained mounts or beasts of burden, thus perhaps from a tottering or quivering motion, which was transferred to shivering. Compare Maltese trieżaħ (to shiver in the cold).

PronunciationEdit
