Syrian Aramaic: nǝḥīrē (pl.) 'nares' [Brock 424]
Modern Aramaic: MAL manḫra 'Nase' [Berg 63: "arab."] MLḤS nḥiro 'Nase' [J Mlah 184] NASS naḫīra 'nose, nostril' [Tser 0138] MMND neh_īra 'nose' [M MND 512]
Mandaic Aramaic: nhira, anhira, ʕnhira (<*ʔa-nḫīr-, with the ʔa- prefix) 'nose' [DM 291]

    Cf. a related verbal root *nḫr 'to snore': AKK naḫāru SB [CAD n1 128], [AHw 713]; GEZ nǝḫra [LGz 396] (cf. also TGR näharä 'to grow angry' [LH 323], TNA näharä 'infuriarsi' [Bass 438], with a tenable meaning shift but irregular -h-).

    Note a likely related AKK nāḫiru 'whale' [CAD n1 137], with an underlying meaning 'snorer' or 'spouter', and UGR nḫr 'Meerstier, etwa Delphin' [Aist 205] (also related or possibly borrowed from AKK).
