Etymology 2[edit]

Phono-semantic matching of Aramaic שׁכרונא‎ / ܫܲܟܪܘܿܢܵܐ(šaḵrōnā, henbane), however not belonging to the root cognate to the Arabic root س ك ر(s-k-r). Derived instead from Akkadian 𒌑𒅫 (U2.ŠAKIR /šakirû/, a plant, drug), ultimately a loan from Sumerian 𒌑𒅫 (U2.ŠAKIR /šakir/, a plant, drug). Found also in the doublet of شَوْكَرَان(šawkarān, hemlock) that is considered the Persian descendant.
