Check this page and the Aramaic root ܙܡܪܐ from the Aramaic Lexicon of Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, OH.


And the meaning includes:

1. Song

2. The song of a musical instrument, music (compare with Arabic Mezmar and Zumara)

3. Psaltery, lyre.

4. Revelry (often with sexual overtones)

I fail to find any reference to "olives" or "olive trees" or "pruning of olive trees"
