On behalf of Richard Whitekettle:
-------------------------------------------------

In Koehler-Baumgartner, under the word tsade yodh II i, an Arabic cognate with
the meaning Wildcat is given: daj/yuna (with a dotted d and a long u).   
Brown-Driver-Briggs gives the word in Arabic characters.

I mentioned the word to a friend who couldn't find it in the Arabic dictionary
he had at hand.

Before tracking down the sources mentioned in KB/BDB, can anyone confirm 1.
the existence of the word, 2. the transliterated spelling of the word, and 3.
the meaning of Wildcat?

Thanks for any help.
