[b-hebrew] Nun-Tav-Vet root

Dear Members,

While this root according to Gesenius and Davidson has the signification of 
Treading, Trampling; I read also that the Arabic refers to a path that is 
elevated, (like maybe a royal pathway).  However they say that the Nun? can 
not refer to this (by that I have absolutely no idea what he is talking 
about).  But since we have the word root: Dalet Resh Qaf meaning precisely 
the same I wonder whether or not the former root has something 'extra' or a 
'subtler shade' in its meaning?

Can anyone elaborate please?
