British Hebraicist Benjamin Davies published his Lexicon of Biblical Hebrew in 1866, laced with some remarkable links to Western languages. Like all the Hebrew scholars of his time, Davies' work was ignored and scorned by those who thought it was ridiculous to see any Hebrew in Indo-Aryan languages.There are mistakes, due to the limited amount of Hebrew and linguistics knowledge then available. But Davies provided new פ-ת P-T links to Sanskrit pat (expand) as well as toLatin pateo (to be revealed), allowing two new entries. Here's one:
Hey-FEETS____פץ____[P-TS à PD]
ROOTS:Latin expandere is to spread out,ex- + pandere, to extend, stretch orspread out.Edenic etymons for P-D are offered below, but since a P-T root opens wider and better, like a PETAL, consider an alleged IE “root” like pet (to spread).
פץPahTS is to spread abroad, to be widely dispersed, as the new language-based families of man did after The Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:4;the infinitive isפוץPOOTS;
הפיץHayPHeeYTS is to scatter and spread out. פזרPaZeR is also to scatter and disperse (Joel 4:2). This is not merely a synonym by fricative-shift, as זZayin/Z can also render a D (as per the Aramaic shift seen at “AUSCULATE.”)
פצהPaTSaH is to open wide (Genesis 4:11);פצעPeTSaH is an open wound (Genesis 4:23) and פצץ PaTSaTS is to disperse (I Chronicles 24:15).Butsee the large family ofPey-Tahf/ P-T “open” words at “PATIO” below which evoke being spread out.
These include פתהPaTaH, to open wide (Proverbs 20:1);פתח PeTa[K]H,an opening (Genesis 18:1 – see “PASSAGE”); andפתוחPaTOOa[K]H,open (Genesis7:11).
BRANCHES: .Usage allows great EXPANSION of our
featured word: EXPANDABLE, EXPANDIBLE, EXPANDABILITY, EXPANDIBILITY, NONEXPANDING,
OVEREXPAND, PREEXPAND, REEXPAND, SELF-EXPANDING, SUPEREXPAND,UNEXPANDABLE and UNEXPANDING.
EXPANSIVE is more clearly from the P-D root of “expand.”The D is dropped as unpronounced. Words like SPAN, however, (the stretch or EXPANSE of time or space) have strayed far from a bilabial-dental root. SPAN has no ancient source.An alternative etymology for SPAN is offered at “SPAN.”
More explosive expansion and spreading out, from the פ-צ Pey-Tsadi rootabove, is seen by tracing words like BUST at “PETARD.” This sound and sense of separation is discernible as a sub-root in חפז[K]HaPHahZ , to leap, start up, be startled in order to flee, and separate oneself from danger (Deuteronomy 20:3, II Samuel 4:4).The ח-פHet-Pheyfirst elementis like the jumping and springing ofקפץQaPHahTS (Songs 2:8). The second element פ-זPhey-Zayin is the open, dramatic movement seen in “PAZAZZ.” ------------------ Archived posts, Edenics searches + web games: http://www.edenics.net/ Edenics DVDs, new ed. of book: THE ORIGIN OF SPEECHES (April).
