Motke: Syriac and Hebrew v Arabic metathesis and the word With!

Reader comment on item: Poll: Israel Victory Gains Strength
in response to reader comment: Syriac vs Arabic vs Hebrew

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Oct 28, 2018 at 13:28

Hi Motke,

This is just an addendum: The Syriac as well as the Hebrew word "with" is: ܥܡ in Syriac or 'Am and in Hebrew עַם

Notice what happens in Arabic it becomes مع or Ma'a where the word clearly undergoes metathesis and words like Emmanuel has no meaning in Arabic

There are many other words where the meaning is lost or changed in Arabic as in Lahma, Sahra (Shahr in Arabic) Very interesting indeed
