Hebrew: tǝʔō, constr. tō(ʔ) 'antelope' [KB 1673], pB. 'wild ox (?)' [Ja. 1641]. In Dt 14.5 (among wild hoofed animals allowed for food) and Is 51.20 (bānayik ʕullǝpū šākǝbū // bǝrō(ʔ)š kol-ḥūṣōt kǝtō(ʔ) mikmār 'your sons lie in faint // on any crossroad, like a t. caught in a snare').

Tigre: tay (pl. tayatat) 'young of gazelle' [LH 320].
Amharic: (?) tǝw(w) 'small elephant' [K 994]. Semantically somewhat remote.
Notes: Reconstruction is not very reliable since it is difficult to say what diachronic backround is behind Hbr. tǝʔō (the proto-form *tāʔ- relies on the construct state tō(ʔ)). One won- ders whether -y [-i] in tʔy [tāʔi] from the Samaritan Pentateuch may correspond to -ay in Tgr. An alternative parallel in Tgr. may be wäʔat 'cow' [LH 441] if a metathetic development *taʔaw- > *waʔat- is assumed.
