>Are there modern Hebrew or Arabic words like "Demamah" and "Daqqah"?
According to HALOT, Middle Hebrew has damam "to be silent, to speak under
one's breath." Galilean Jewish Aramaic and Mandaic have dmdm, Arabic has
damdama "to murmur," and Ethiopic has tadamama "to be stupefied." Middle
Hebrew has daq "thin, fine," Ugaritic has dq "small," Akkadian has daqqu
"tiny," Targum Aramaic, Samaritan, and Syriac have daqqiq and Arabic and
Ethiopic daqiq "child."
