Ugaritic ṭlb 'to desire, seek, demand', Arabic ṭ lb - other Semitic cognates?
- Zammit, in his etymological dictionary of Qur'anic Arabic, lists only one
cognate for Arabic ṭlb 'to seek, search' (cf. ṭālib 'student') - Ugaritic
ṭlb, glossed as 'verlangen'. I'm presuming this is taken from Aistleitner's
Wörterbuch der Ugaritischen Sprache; however, I don't have access to this,
and none of the other resources at my disposal (including del Olmo Lete and
Sanmartin; Hoftijzer and Jongeling) mentions this word. Does anyone know
anything about it - or about any other potential Semitic cognates?
