Probably somebody has. At least I hope so.
I only brought up some popular sea-related words that I could come
Like I have said, my grandfather has told me that there are different
names for different kind of sea_winds, -weather, and -water but I am
incompetent to prove this.
I brought up the names of some other sea-related winds like <puhi>
It would also be interensting to know the etymology of the words
<zhyt> 'dive', <mbyt> 'sink', <kripë> 'salt'.
As what regards <besë>, apparently it should be related to Thracian
goddess Bendis and tribe Bessi.
I comprehend <bessi> as a union between some families or tribes in
order to become more powerful f.ex. against a common enemy. <lidh
besë> or <besëlidhje> has a similar meaning in Albanian.
