Etymology[edit]

According to Nişanyan, borrowed from Aramaic: compare Jewish Babylonian Aramaic כבבא(kbbʾ, roasting of meat), כיבה(kybʾ, perhaps roasted meat), which are from the verb כבב(kbb, to burn, roast), ultimately from Proto-Semitic *kabab- (to burn, to roast), whence also Akkadian 𒅗𒁀𒁍 (/kabābu/, to burn).

Noun[edit]

كَبَاب

كَبَاب (kabābm
