"هٰذِهِ الْموزة طَيِّبة."
Translation:This banana is good.
Where is the word banana in Arabic from...? It is so strange, weird, ممتع, that it sounds different than the word banana which is banana in every other language I know so far - how it is...? What is its origin in Arabic? Why the whole world call that fruit banana, but the Arabic language has its own word, something totally different - what does its root mean and what is the reason it's so different?
Maybe it was already asked and explained somewhere else, but I was running with exercises and didn't check every forum, so sorry if it's so, feel free to answer with link.
My question shows prove that I studied historical linguistics - it's interesting for me to discover what is interesting for me... :D Prove that I made a good choice with my thesis theme... :D
It looks like it was borrowed from Sanskrit. See https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/banana.738243/. Also "musa" is the scientific name for banana.
