Very scarce attestation: Arb. and ESA only; possibility of an inter-borrowing cannot be ruled out. Seems to be supported by Afras.
Probably related to *dVḳm- (same meaning) as a variant root.
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.
Attested only in the S. Sem. area; possibly an areal term not of common Sem. origin.
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.
