Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 שֶׁנְהַבִּים apparently noun masculine [plural], in list of Solomon's imports, 1 Kings 10:22 2 Chronicles 9:21, AV RV ivory (elsewhere שֵׁן alone); hence הַבִּים = elephants according to Ges (in Thes) Ew Hi Schr ZMG xxvii (1873), 709 COT 1Kings, compare ᵐ5 ( 2 Chronicles , and A in 1Kings) ὀδόντων ἐλεφαντίνων, ᵑ9 (in 1Kings) dentes elephantorum, ᵑ7; but this very dubious; < read Rö Thes Th Be Che EB 1154 שֵׁן (וְ)הָבְנִים ivory (and) ebony ( Ezekiel 27:15).

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שֶׁנְהַבִּים m. pl. ivory, 1 Kings 10:22; 2 Chronicles 9:21 (LXX. ὀσόντες ἐλεφάντινοι. Targ. שֵׁן דְּפִיל tooth of an elephant), compounded of שֵׁן tooth, and (as was first shewn by Ag. Benary in Annal. Litt. Berol. 1831, No. 96) הָאִבִּים contr. הַבִּים, from the Sanscr. ibha-s (whence with the Arabic art. Gr. ἐλ-έφας), an elephant, which the Hebrews could only pronounce אִבָּה or אִבָּא (pl. אִבִּים). This is more suitable than what I formerly supposed, namely that שֶׁנְהַבִּים was a corruption of שֶׁנְהַפִּיל, from פִּיל elephant.
