CUTTING Away to the Edenic Music of Meaning

Music is the international language.  Earth's original human language program, Edenic or Pre-Hebrew, echos the music of meaning.

To CUT something sounds a lot like K-T, guttural-dental (throat-made and tooth ridge-made letter).  Biblical Hebrew has a tiny vocabulary compared to English.
But see and hear the sound of cutting below:

The E-Word entry:



CUT              QaTSaTS            Koof-Tsadi-Tsadi


ROOTS: Icelandic kuta (to cut with a knife) represents one of the oldest KT cut words. There's Latin caedere (to cut), but somehow there is no Indo-European alleged “root.”  Edenic has many  guttural-dental 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).  ח-צ Het-Tsadi cutters include       חצב  K]HaTSaBH (to hew out),חצד  [K]HaTSaD (to harvest),   חצה [K]HaTSaH (to divide in two, separate, partition, halve - Exodus 21: 35)),   חצי [K]HaTSeeY (half – Exodus 24:6) and the arrow,   חץ [K]HaiTS (see “HASTATE”).    

חתך K[H]aTahKH (to cut).   Aramaic  כת KahT is a sect, a special group cut away from others.  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.    Cutters with a Koof  begin with  קדד QaDaD and   קדח QaDa[K]H, to cut, drill; and קטם QaDTaM, to cut off, lop off (in Syriac-Aramaic).

קוט QOODT (Job 8:4) is another “cut off” verb. קטן  QaDTaN is small, as if cut down to size. קטף  QaDTahF is to pluck or crop off (Deuteronomy 23:26).  קצ Koof-Tsadi  is especially sharp.   קוץ  QOATS is a thorn (Genesis 3:18). קץ QaiTS means “the end or limit” (see “COAST”) because it is the CUT OFF point in space or time. קוץ  QOATS (waking) also can mean the end of a dream transmission.

Following subroots let you follow Biblical lead-words and leitmotifs, as when two years in prison end (with קץ) for Joseph in Genesis 41:1 when Pharaoh dreams… and wakes (also with קץ) three verses later.

 Sound-alikes    קצבQaTSahBH (II Kings 6:6) and קצף  QaTSahF (meanto cut off,” while the later is about anger or reaching the end of one’s patience. קצה

 QeeTSaH (is a fatal cutting off  -- II Kings10:32).   קצע QeeTSay[A]h (to trim),  קצץ QaTSaTS (Deuteronomy 25:12)  and  קצר  QaTSeR (cut down, harvest – Leviticus 23:10) all involve cutting off ends.  קצץ QaTaTS is also about deciding. So a  קצין   QaTSeeYN (decider, captain – Judges 1:6) is supposed to cut off or end controversies.

Arabic qadda is “he cut lengthwise.” Syriac has similar QD cutters. Arabic qasa (he cut, clipped) and Akkadian qasasu (to hew or cut off).

The built-in antonym, that which is whole and uncut, is  אחד  EK[H]aD (one), also  a guttural-dental – see “EACH” and “ACUTE.”


If Edenic was designed by a supra-human intelligence, and not evolved from apes and shaped by usage…then why so much unnecessary duplication with all  these guttural-dental cutters? The answer is in the sub-roots. For example, קצף   QaTSaPH (to cut or pluck off; a splinter or fragment of wood, etc – Hosea 10:7) is different than     קצץ QaTSaTS (to cut into pieces – Exodus 39:3).

 קצף QaTSahPH, is a cutting at the TOP, from the  2nd,    צ-ף Tasdi-Pey sub-root. צפה TSaPHaH is to cover, overlay, coat, float above… in other words: TOP.   See “TOP.”



BRANCHES:  DEICIDE, HOMICIDE and SUICIDE are from Latin caedere (to cut down, kill).קטל  QaDTaL  (to kill) is a "cut" word by family association.   קדדQaDaD (to cut off) sounds closest to the Latin. SCYTHE and Chinese t'ao k'o (reversed KT, meaning to cut or carve) relate here.

CUTE, CUTICLE and ACUTE are elsewhere linked to sharp terms like  חד K[H]ahD (sharp, thin), but they also relate to  קטQahDT (small, tiny)  as in CUT OFF or CUT DOWN –  see “KITTEN.”

Japanese chuto de (halfway) matches theח-צ  Het-Tsadi half words above.

Reversed Japanese cutters, TG words include: togarasu (to sharpen), togatta, sharp, toge (thorn) and togu, to sharpen and grind (see “TALCUM”).    Italian "cut" is tagliare.

Dental-guttural “axe” words include Korean doki (axe) and Easter Island (Polynesian) toki (axe).

  An example of the many hidden KT cuters is Spanish  escamondar  (to trim, cut off, prune).   It is both an M132 metathesis  and a nasalization of Edenic cutters like:       קדם  QaDaM (to lop off – see above), and  קטן QaDTaN (made small – Amos 8:5).

 Writing once meant cutting into stone or clay, so thatכתיבה     KiTeeYBHaH (writing, manuscript) is an extension of CUT.   עטGHaiDT is a writing stylus (another cutter – Isaiah 13:20).  Writings were first cuttings, so writing isכתב  KTaBH. In Exodus 34:1, the writing on the stone tablets were certainly cut. In Exodus 32:32 the כתב   Kaph-Tahf-Bhet term refers to a written book. 

A book is also a KTB term in Arabic, Farsi, Indonesian, Swahili and Turkish. The Japanese Kotoba (word, language) is beyond the range of a borrowing from Semitic. The sound and sense of  guttural-dental cutting,  or KT reversed, is quite widespread.  

QUOTE is said to be from Latin quot, how, a  cognate of words like “quantity.”

With the U and V confusion, and an M132 metathesis, QUOTE could be from  כתב KTa[V], text or writ.    Cutters like the  AX, AXE and ADZE or Greek axine (axe) are merely KahTS à aK(T)S variants of the Hebrew  guttural-dental cutters above, that came via Aramaicחצינא   [K]HaTSeeYNAh (ax)  or Akkadian hasinnu (ax) ,

Our guttural-dental family all involved cuts or ends – we cut off ends.  Rabbi  Lt. Col. Yehoshua Steinberg.derives the Rabbinic word GeT (a divorce) from the  קט Koof-Tet K-T term seen in Psalms 95:10.

A divorce is also a cutting and an ending.

 CUT is the same in Danish and Maltese, slightly changed to cott in Norwegian and cắt in Vietnamese.  French couteau is a knife.  K-T cutters include:  Bangla kaata, Hindi katauti and Swahili kata.

See "CURT," SAXON" and "SUICIDE."  Botanical cutters are at “ACACIA.”
