jim,

all these three words: AB, RAM, NAHAR were equally used in 
canaanite and aramaic, among several other very similar semitic dialects.

now, aramaic was spoken in syria and, in fact, is recorded in several
mesopotamean sites. so, i do not see how, linguistically, these words 
can provide a proof that abraham did not come to canaan from these regions.
