Etymology[edit]

From the root ء س س(ʾ-s-s). The Arabic root is weakly developed; thus is concluded that all other words in it are denominal from this noun and this noun is, similarly to other architectural terms, borrowed from Aramaic אוּשָּׁא(ʾūšā, foundation), from Akkadian [Term?] (/uššu/, foundation).

Noun[edit]

أُسّ or أَسّ (ʾuss or ʾassm (plural إِسَاس(ʾisās) or آسَاس(ʾāsās))

  1. foundation, groundwork, basis
  2. (mathematics) power, exponent
