Aramaic

Verb

כבד

  1. to be angry

Hebrew

כבד

Etymology 1

Noun

כָּבֵד
  1. Liver (organ of the body).
Usage notes
  • Like other words that start with ב,‎ ג,‎ ד,‎ כ,‎ פ,‎ or ת, this term's initial letter takes a dagesh lene. In older texts, that dagesh is usually dropped when the word is preceded, in the same phrase, by a word ending in a mater lectionis; in modern texts, the dagesh is usually preserved even in such a case. Likewise, in older texts, the dagesh is always dropped when the word is prefixed by an indefinite ב-‏,‎ כ-‏,‎ or ל-‏; in modern speech, the dagesh is often preserved in such a case. (After the definite ב-‏,‎ כ-‏,‎ and ל-‏, and after the prefixes ה-‏,‎ מ-‏,‎ and ש-‏, there is a dagesh forte, as described in the usage notes for those prefixes.)

Etymology 2

Adjective

כָּבֵד
  1. Heavy, having much weight.

  1. (He) swept (cleaned using a broom or the like).
Usage notes
