SHACK $OOKaH Sin-Vav-Kahf-Hey
ROOTS: The dictionaries are not sure where SHACK (crude cabin, shanty) came from, but they offer "said to be a contraction of Mexican jacal, from Aztec xacalli (wooden hut)." שך SoaKH (which may be read SHoaKH) is a booth, pavilion or "tabernacle" in Lamentations 2:6. SoaKH is a booth (Psalms 27:5), and the more common סכה SOOKaH is a booth or tabernacle. Leviticus 23:42 charges Israelites to "live in booths" for seven days on the Festival of Booths or Tabernacles. סך $oaKH is a hut or tent (Psalms 27:5). Edenic has KS and SK CASINGS and SACKS – see “SACK” and “ENCASE.” Reversing Samekh-Khaf/$-KH, כסה KHa$aH means covering and concealing.
BRANCHES: . סך $oaKH can also mean a thicket.שכך SaKHAKH is to screen or cover. Theש-כ Sin-Khaf is a temporary shelter from the elements, likeסוכה $OOKaH and SHACK. See "ENSCONCE" and "SCENE" for extensions of these SK cover-shelter-housing terms; see "HOUSE" for KS reversals of same. At “HOUSE” those related words, like ח-ס Het-Samekh words of protection and refuge, are also fricatives with (softer) gutturals. Reversing the S-K of our Edenic etymons produces Spanish casa (house). It occurred to Kenneth H. Ryesky that KIOSK (a small commercial booth) may be from the same K-S, S-K construction as theסכה SUKKAH (holiday tabernacle or booth). Webster's has Turkish kösk coming from Persian kushk (portico) -- which is a protective porch.Archived posts, Edenics searches + web games: http://www.edenics.net/
