Words

Akkadian
bāštu - dignity, good looks (as quality of human beings and gods) (CAD B 142, AHw. 112)
Var.: bāltu. Cf. Arb. bˀs “to be strong, mighty”, baˀs- “might, strength, courage, valour” (Lane 146; see Kogan 2003:258).
Akkadian
bašû - to exist, to be (CAD B 144, AHw. 112)
Derived words: bāšû 'existing, available' (CAD B 161, AHw. 114); bāšītu 'valuables, possessions' (CAD B 139, AHw. 111); bišītu 'property' (CAD B 269, AHw 131); bīšu (bišû) 'possessions' (CAD B 271, AHw. 131); būšu (bušû, bušiˀu) 'property, goods' (CAD B 353, AHw. 144); mušabšû 'creator (CAD M₂ 250, AHw. 680); nabšiˀu 'deposit' (CAD N₁ 30, AHw. 699); tabšītu 'creation' (CAD T 33, AHw. 1299).
In spite of the fact that the prototype *b-ṯ-y is unambiguously established thanks to the regular third millennium orthography with ŠV, the etymology of the Akkadian verb is completely uncertain.
Akkadian
bâšu - to stamp, tamp (AHw. 1547, CDA 41)
If the meaning “stampfen” proposed for this verb in AHw is accepted, it could be compared with Hbr. bws “to tread down” (HALOT 115), even if the sibilant correspondence is irregular. Further possible cognates are Syr. besbes “pervellit; laceravit” (LSyr. 80), Arb. bss “to break in pieces” (Lane 201), Min. bs₁s₁ “broyer; tomber en poussière; briser” (LM 24).
