Dechich arabice farina.


farina f | farĩa B | ferina ACD | firina e


Dechich is Arabic for Latin farina {"flour"}.


Wehr (1976): ﺩﻗﻴﻖ /daqīq/ "{i.a.} flour, meal".

Ms. f still has the correct form farina; B, the early Zarotus print of 1473, has farĩa; after that a printing error crept in - ferina - which was subsequently copied by other early prints.
