EtymologyEdit

From Arabic سَبَّتَ(sabbata), intensive of سَبَتَ(sabata, to cut, smite, cast down). The root partly overlaps with س ب ط(s-b-ṭ), which could explain the Maltese a-vocalism. It is likely that the verb was later associated with and influenced by the unrelated Sicilian sbattiri, Italian sbattere.
