banān بنان , var. bunān
ID 096 • Sw – • BP – • APD ... • Aut SG
BNː (BNN)
n.
finger tips | yušāru ʕalayhi bi-b. lit.: he is pointed at with fingers, i.e., he is a famous man; ʔanā ṭawʕa banānika I am at your disposal, I am at your service – WehrCowan1979.
Etymology unclear.
eC7 Q 8:12 fa-’ḍribū fawqa l-ʔaʕnāqi wa-’ḍribū min-hum kulla banānin ‘Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger’; 75:4 qādirīna ʕalā ʔan nusawwiya banāna-hū ‘We are able to restore his very fingers!’
DRS#bnn-4 gives bunān (with u ) and the “dial. mér.” forms banna , bunna ‘doigt, orteil; longueur ou largeur d’un doigt’.
Probably unrelated to other items of the root as given by DRS (of which only →bunn‑ ‘coffee beans, (unground) coffee’ is still known in MSA), cf. →BNN .
