>Points of interest:
>"amalgamatz" /amalkam'ats/ is from Arabic "amal al-gama'a".
I've looked for the roots 'ml, `ml, gm' and gm` in my Hebrew dictionary (presuming
they won't be much different from the Arabic roots) and all I can see that the
Arabic phrase might mean is "Work of the weak" or "Work of the drink". What
should it be?
"Dochuala as borb nad légha."
