Central Chadic: *ʔub- > *ḅV-bV 'breast'
East Chadic: *baw-, *-ba 'milk' 1, 'breast' 2
Low East Cushitic: *ʕib- 'nipple'
Notes: Sem. *ɣ- < Afras. *ɣ- does not yield 0 either in Brb or CCh, while *ʕ- does; therefore, according to the external data, the Sem version in *ʕ- should be accepted as a primary one, and that in *ɣ, as a secondary variant root.
