Arabic[edit]

تَمْر

Etymology 1[edit]

The native distribution of the date-palm is questionable and this Arabic word has been based on this and the perception that the ثَمَر(ṯamar, fruits) is the same word generalized by reason of later importance of the date from an original meaning “dates” declared together with Hebrew תָּמָר(tāmār) reborrowed from Aramaic תמרא‎ / ܬܡܪܐ(tamrē), which direction is also pointed at by more specific borrowed date culture terms like شِيص(šīṣ, unfecundated dates), قَسْب(qasb, dried dates), and كَافُور(kāfūr, bract of the inflorescence of the date palm).

Noun[edit]

تَمْر (tamrm (collective, singulative تَمْرَة‎ f (tamra), plural تُمُور(tumūr))

  1. date (fruit)
