II. מָן in Exodus 16:15 (with reference to the manna) מַההֿוּא וַיּאֹמְרוּ אִישׁ אֶלאָֿחִיו מָן הוּא כִּי לֹא יָָֽדְעוּ, most probably 'What is it?' the question being intended as a popular etymology of מָן 'manna,' based upon the late Aramaic What ? (man is 'Who?' in Arabic, Aramaic מַן ), Mandaean (מאן), Ethiopic (manu), 'What?' in these dialects being מָה מָא (Ethiopic ment); מָן in the sense of 'What?' must correspond to the later Syriac contracted from ᵑ7 מָדֵין Nö§ 68 WSG 125).
From mah; literally, a whatness (so to speak), i.e. Manna (so called from the question about it) -- manna.
