Lemizh / English dictionary
to make Shabar (the capital of Lemaria)
There is of course an elaboate founding myth dating back to Late Middle Lemizh times, which this space is too narrow to contain.
< NLem haba‑a
< LMLem hàbà‑yr
< MLem haebaa‑yr ‘Shabar (kingdom)’
The further etymology is doubtful; the word is possibly related to Ar سبأ, Heb שבא ‘Sheba’;
or else to a Proto-Turkic word meaning ‘low’ and OPers bāğ ‘garden, orchard’ (i.e. ‘lower vineyards’);
or maybe both.
