"𒄩" meaning in Sumerian

See 𒄩 in All languages combined, or Wiktionary

Noun

Forms: ku₆ [romanization], kud [romanization]
Etymology: 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. Etymology templates: {{bor|sux|qfa-sub}} substrate, {{cog|ine-pro|*dʰǵʰu-||fish}} Proto-Indo-European *dʰǵʰu- (“fish”) Head templates: {{head|sux|noun|tr=ku₆, kud|ts=kud}} 𒄩 • (ku₆, kud /kud/)
