Etymology[edit]

From Arabic أَنَا(ʔanā), but with an irregular development that points to expressive lengthening of the first syllable (*ʾānā), followed by reduction of final long vowel (compare Maltese jien, Egyptian Arabic انا(ána), Tunisian Arabic آنا(ʔānā)). Eventually from Proto-Semitic *ʔanāku.
