Comments: Cf. especially Karata ṭor- 'to drop, drip, flow'. For 'spring, source' the compound *itur̄-begi 'fountain-eye' is used (cf. Span. ojo, Arabic, Hebrew ʕayin with this sense), or *itur̄-sulɦo 'fountain-hole'. Some other forms from this root seem to be Bsq *e=to ‘to drown’ and *i=to- ‘gutter’.
