בָּבָה f. (with Kametz impure), pr. cavity, aperture (from the root נָבַב, for נְבָבָה, נְבָאבָה), hence a gate, Like the Arab. بَابُ. This word is used in Hebrew in one phrase בָּבַת עַיִן “the gate of the eye,” i.e. the pupil, which is really the entrance or gate of the inner eye; Zechariah 2:12.

For בָּבָה may be for בָּאבְאָה i.q. بُوءْبُوءُ a little boy, Syr. ܒܳܒܘܽܣܳܐ (from the onomatop. بابا παππάζειν), and this may be applied to the pupil, in the same manner as אִישׁוֹן, which see.
