Ometo:Wol. barayyiyu 'mare', "prob. a loanword from Kafa... However, there is no doubt that this lexeme represents a borrowing from Sem., cf. Tigre/Tigrinny/Gurage/Argobba/Amharic bazra" Lamb. Wol., 324.
Notes:In Kafa and Moča -y- may correspond to *-z-, but not in Wol., where z <*z. The idea of borrowing from Kafa/Moča ("Shekko") is the only one justifying the assertion that "this lexeme represents a borrowing from Sem....bazra" Lamb. Wol., 324. One wonders whether loan in Wol. from Kf./Mč. are common, if any.
