Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-West Semitic *našr-, whence was derived the denominal root ن س ر(n-s-r).

  2. (proscribed) an eagle
    Synonym: عُقَاب(ʿuqāb)
Declension[edit]
Usage notes[edit]

The word is commonly used to refer to eagles, especially in the dialects. This use, however, is almost unanimously criticized by prescriptivists, who maintain that عُقَاب(ʿuqāb) should be used instead.
