References: ND 1425 *mEn̄V 'front' (Drav. + IE *men- 'protrude' + some Cush., Chad.).

The reconstruction ND 1448 *mowE[ń]V 'intestines, belly' is based on a non-existing Alt. root. (Sam. + TM *mōmańa + Cush.), and arbitrarily separated from ND 1449 *mEʔawuńV 'breast, chest, heart' (based on an incorrect TM reconstruction)...
