Thanks for helping me towards a better approach to understanding the word

Is the "price of a dog" to be taken literally in Deut 23:18?

Most agree that the word *keleb *may signify a promiscuous person and that
the expression the "price of a dog" means "the wages of male prostitution"
(TWOT Lexicon).

However, is there an etymon that can help support this interpretation?
