Actually, as far as i know, something like _lahhma_ in Arabic means
"meat", while the Hebrew word _lehhem_ means "bread".  And, of course,
the root LHhM means "to wage war"  :-) .

Rokbeigalmki (unfinished):

KabŠkha uhzu-dal (tooth)m, KabŠkha uhzii-dal (bread).

The Rokbeigalm probably concieve of bread as a special kind of food,
since it needs to be prepared by a long process which completely changes
it from grain to bread, instead of other foods like fish or fruit which
are pretty much WYSIWYG.
