Related Languages The same semantic shift (with the same suppletivism) is also found in Soqotri, cf. Kogan 2015:592; LS 49.
Comment Both terms go back to PS ʔab- 'father' (cf. Kogan 2015:592 with further references). The feminine form of the adjective 'big' is formed from a suppletive base going back to PS *ʔimm- 'mother' (cf. JJ 3; Kogan 2015:592).
