𒄩 (nūnu) [KU6]
An Akkadogram, possibly for 𒈦𒄷𒌋𒉿𒄿𒀀𒀸 (parḫūwayas).
𒄩 • (KU6)
- fish? (an animal whose meat was dried and eaten)
A term found in the alleged Euphratic substrate theory, which connects it to Proto-Indo-European *dʰǵʰu- (“fish”). This word in particular is not of atypical syllable structure for being native Sumerian, which is the main sign indicating a potential borrowing into the language. Concurring with the opinion of Pennsylvania State University's Dr. Rubio, the borrowing from multiple languages rather than a specific substratum is now the predominant viewpoint in the field.
