A New Proposal for Ugaritic ṣṣ, "salt, salt-field"
Watson, Wilfred G. E.

Date: 2020
Abstract: The meaning of Ugaritic ṣṣ is shown to be "salt, salt field", as generally recognised. Then, additional cognates, mainly from the Ethiopian languages, are proposed for this word. Its nominal form is discussed briefly and some comments are given on the possible uses of salt and salt fields in ancient Ugarit. As an appendix, all the texts in which Ug. ṣṣ occurs are set out.
