ʔibhām (2) إبْهام , pl. ʔabāhīmᵘ
ID ... • Sw – • BP – • APD ... • Aut SG
BHM_3
n.
thumb; big toe – WehrCowan1979.
Not clear whether Ar has preserved an original final *‑m or whether this has developed from an earlier form in *‑n .
...
DRS 2 (1994)#BHM/N: Akk ubān‑ ‘doigt’, Hbr bōhen , Ar ʔibhām , dial bihām , bāhim , Mhr hābīn ‘pouce’.
▪ Fronzaroli#2.86 reconstructs Sem *buhān‑ ‘finger’, Kogan2011 has Sem *bVhVn‑ ‘thumb’.
▪ DRS 2 (1994)#BHM/N: »Une reconstruction de la forme proto-Sem reste problématique« (*BHM or *BHN ?).
▪ Neither ʔibhām nor bāhim look as if they were the proper etymon. Rather are they derived from s.th. else that however has not left other traces.
▪ A connection with BHM_1 ‘(to be) unable to speak, dumb’ or BHM_2 ‘animal, cattle’ can well be excluded; see →BHM.
Cf. also
bāhim, n., big toe.
