Etymology[edit]

Uncertain; while both forms are now about equally distributed, غَرْقَد(ḡarqad) is probably more original, and it may be a blend of غَرِقَ(ḡariqa, to dive in) +‎ رَقَدَ(raqada, to recline) due to the plant serving the feral animals for recess.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

غَرْدَق (ḡardaqm (collective, singulative غَرْدَقَة‎ f (ḡardaqa))

  1. nitre bush (Nitraria gen. et spp.)
