If you were to translate 'logos' into Aramaic, do you know what that word would be? Something like Davar or DBR?
I doubt it, since, as Delodephius explained, in Greek philosophy the idea of logos developed way beyond the idea of 'word' and it was most likely an idea that could be translated as logos.
May I ask, lightheartedly, why you are obsessed with the semitic verb root D-B-R?
Greek speakers, thinking that their culture was so far above the primitive Israelites, decided to tell them what God MEANT to say.

Advanced civilizations usually teach the more primitive ones. But if I was a Greek at that time I wouldn't even bother with the Israelites.

Delodephius wrote:The word Logos was first used in such form by Heraclitus in the 6th century BC (one of my favourite philosophers). It is said to correspond perfectly to the Zoroastrian term Asha, which is most likely from where Heraclitus learned a great deal. Greek philosophy, especially Platonism, was influenced by Zoroastrianism. Judaism was too. Some Psalms are almost Gathic in content, indicating they were composed during the exile in Mesopotamia.
