Etymology 2[edit]

Borrowed from Aramaic דּוֹחַן(doḥan, millet), from Akkadian 𒌅𒄴𒉡 (/duḫnu; tuḫnu/, millet), ultimately from a variation of Proto-Semitic *ṭaḥan-/*ṭaḥaḥ- (to grind, to pound, to crush, to break down into pieces; especially of corn), found in طَحَّ(ṭaḥḥa, to scrape, to grate, to remove an outside surface, to make flakes or powder, to break down into pieces). Doublet of طَحَنَ(ṭaḥana, to grind, to mill) and cognate with Classical Syriac ܕܽܘܚܢܴܐ(duḥnā, millet) and Hebrew דֹּחַן(doḥan, millet). There is no direct connection to Proto-Indo-European *dʰoHnéh₂ although a distant relation has been suggested.
