More built-in opposites:
בדק BeDeQ is a breach, gap.
Its opposite via an M213 metahthesis and a Bilabial Shift is דבק DeBHeQ, welding, soldering together
בזז BaZaZ, to steal, EMBEZZLE [BUZZARD]
ß Reverse to Zayin-Bhet for זבד ZeBHeD, source of SPONSOR at the "SPEND" entry. Zayin/Z and Bhet/BH shifted to S and P. SPEND also has a nasalization (added N).
בחור Ba[K]HOOR, young man, is the opposite of a גבר GeBHeR, mature man. At entries like "BIG" and "VIRILE.' These two bilabial-guttural-liquid opposites are linked via an M313 metathesis, with bilabial and guttural shifts.
Heat wave coming to Safed. Can't wait.
