20th Century linguistics still CUT off Semitic from other language groups.
Let's see if a look at CUT suggests that it may be the experts who are CUT off from truth:
CUT KahT Kaph-Tahf
ROOTS: Icelandic kuta (to cut with a knife) represents one of the oldest KT cut words. There's Latin caedere (to cut), but somehow no Indo-European alleged root. Edenic (Pre-Hebrew) has many guttural-dental (thhroat-tongue) CUTTERS.
גדד GaDaD is to cut off (Daniel 4:11).
גזהGaZaH is to cut (there’s a ד-ז Daled/D-Zayin/Z link via Aramaic).
Both Gimel-Dalet-Ayin and Koof-Tet-Ayin, גדע GaD[A]h (Isaiah 9:9) and קטע QaDT[A] mean (to cut off,
חטבK[H]oDTa[V] (to cut, hew - Deuteronomy 29:10), חתך
K[H]aTahKH (to cut),
Aramaic כת KahT is a sect, a special group cut away from others, קצבQaTSa[V] and קצף QaTSaF mean “to cut off, קצה QeeTSaH (to cut off), קצעQeeTSay[A]h (to trim), קצר QaTSeR (cut down, harvest – Leviticus 23:10), and חצה K[H]aT(S)aH ( to halve - Exodus 21: 35).קץ
QaiTS is the cut off or end – see “COAST.” Harkavy comparesקוץ QOOTS (to cut or pluck off), קצץ QaTSaTS and קוט QOODT (Job 8:4) as “cut off” verbs. קטף QaDTaF (to pluck or crop – Deuteronomy 28:26) is another cutter. Arabic qadda is “he cut lengthwise.” Syriac has similar QD cutters.
Het-Tsadi cutters include חצב[K]HaTSaBH (to hew out),חצד [K]HaTSaD (to harvest), חצה [K]HaTSaH (to divide in two, separate, partition), חצי [K]HaTSeeY (half – Exodus 24:6) and the arrow, חץ [K]HaiTS (see “HASTATE”).
More cutters with a Koof include קדד QaDaD and קדח QaDa[K]H, to cut, drill; קטם QaDTaM, to cut off, lop off (in Syriac-Aramaic); and קצץ QaTSaTS (cut off – Deuteronomy 25:12).
This group is all related, according to E.D. Klein, to Aramaic and Syriac קצץ QaTaTS (he cut off, decided), Arabic qasa (he cut, clipped) and Akkadian qasasu (to hew or cut off).
The guttural- Ayin and Tet, עט GHaiDT (stylus, pen – Psalms 45:2) also has the sound and sense of cutting, though the cutting is finer.
The built-in antonym, that which is whole and uncut is אחד EK[H]aD (one), also a guttural-dental – see the “EACH” and “ACUTE” entries in the Edenics E-Word CD Dict. (lightcatcherbooks.com)
