Reconstructions

PES
*ˁaŝā - fish (Dolgopolsky 1973:293, Appleyard 1977:42, Kogan 2015: 449)

Clearly borrowed from Cushitic.

PES
*bḳʷˁ - to fit, to be sufficient (CDG 99, Kogan 2015: 459)

The origin of Proto-EthS *bḳʷˁ ‘to be sufficient’ is uncertain, but note Arb. bqˁ = ˀiktafā (TA 20 346).

PES
*blˁ - to eat (Kogan 2015: 445)
PES
*blḫ - to be sharp (CDG 95, Kogan 2015: 454)
PES
*batr- - branch, stick (DRS 90, Kogan 2015: 454)
PES
*byṣ̂ - to be white, bright, yellow (Kogan 2015: 175)
PES
*bzḫ - to be numerous (Kogan 2015: 442)
PES
*dlw - to weigh

the connection of the root as well as its ESA and MSA cognates (Sab. mdlt, SD 36, Soq. déle, LS 128) to PS *dlw is questionable

PES
*dammanā - cloud (Kogan 2015: 448)

Thought to be borrowed from Cushitic by A. Dolgopolsky (1973:51) and D. Appleyard (1977:36). A. Militarev (2004:299‒300, 2010:58) prefers to treat the EthS and Cushitic terms as cognates.

PES
*fḳḳ - to stand aside (?) (CDG 164, Kogan 2015:385, note 1080)

Cf. PArm. *npḳ ‘to go out’.
