Lehite GN 1. City which sank into the sea, ca. 30 AD (3 Nephi 9:7)

Etymology

Hebrew maqōm, “place, station, town, village; holy site”,[1] also known from Syriac, Ethiopic, Arabic, and Phoenician with the analogous meaning; however, the vowel shift is rather dramatic.

Perhaps from Mayan mo'-k'u'-um "macaw nest" (MW, JG).[2]

Cf. Book of Mormon JACOM, CUMORAH, CUMENI, CUMENIHAH, KUMEN, KISHKUMEN, et al.

Variants

Deseret Alphabet: 𐐣𐐄𐐗𐐊𐐣 (moʊkʌm)

Notes


  1. HALOT.
  2. Erik Boot, A Preliminary Classic Maya-English/English-Classic Maya Vocabulary of Hieroglyphic Readings (2002), 59; Cecil H. Brown and Soren Wichmann, "Proto-Mayan Syllable Nuclei," International Journal of American Linguistics 70/2 (2004): 177. The -um ending is attached to words dealing with birds.
