Reconstructions

Areal reconstruction
*būḥ- - phallus; genitalia (SED I No. 35)

Very scarce attestation: Arb. and ESA only; possibility of an inter-borrowing cannot be ruled out. Seems to be supported by Afras.

Areal reconstruction
*duḫn- - millet (Fronzaroli 1969b, pp. 13, 28, Kogan 2012a: 247)
Areal reconstruction
*dVḳl- - beak (SED I No. 49)

Probably related to *dVḳm- (same meaning) as a variant root.

Areal reconstruction
*dVḳm- - mouth; jaw; beak (SED I No. 49, DRS 304)
Areal reconstruction
*gamal- - camel (SED II No. 79, Kogan 2011: 207)

One of the four widespread designations of camel in individual languages; the similarity between these designations must be due to diffusion from an Arabian source.

Areal reconstruction
*gVrVb- - body, trunk (SED I No. 90)
Areal reconstruction
*gišm- - body, trunk (SED I No. 96; Kogan 2011: 214)
Areal reconstruction
*kawdan- - mule (SED II No. 124; Kogan 2011: 207)
Areal reconstruction
*ḳanṭīr- - clitoris (SED I No. 163)

Attested only in the S. Sem. area; possibly an areal term not of common Sem. origin.

Areal reconstruction
*mḫṣ̂ - to have labour pains (SED I No. 40v)

Though likely derived from PS *mḫṣ̂ 'to smite' (see in HALOT 571, CDG 338), a parallelism in Arb. and Eth. is hardly a fortuitous result of independent semantic development.
