P-S-KPeSaK[H] (Passover): An Historical S-K-P (skip)
And a Slave People's Rites of PaSSaGe
To some פסחPesach (Passover) is Spring Break, or a Thanksgiving-like family reunion.
To Italians, Latinos and many other Pasqua or Pascua means Easter.
To those riding the ellipses of history Passover is the Big Bang
When the laws of nature were stretched to allow an opening, a PASSAGE
for the true freedom of working for the Eternal, not for a Pharaoah.
ROOTS:There is no Indo-European “root” for SKIP.Lexicographers take a pass on this by saying it might be a shortened form of SKIPPER.It is unclear how ships skip.
Swedish dialect does have a skopameaning "to skip, leap."
פסחPa$a[K]H isto pass over or SKIP over(Exodus 12:13). In the climax of ten increasingly unnatural plagues that took down the superpower of classical Egypt, all firstborns, even secret ones, had their souls recalled. But the Israelites were spared, were skipped over.
An M231 metathesis ofפסחPa$a[K]H (Passover) brings S-K-P into view.
BRANCHES:Indo European cognatesandEdenic related words are available at“PASSAGE” and “PATIO.”An Asian word meaning leaping and omitting ought to reverse the P-S Edenic etymon or the bilabial-dental of its many similar words. Japanese tobasu does so.

ROOTS: PASSAGE is thought to come from Old French passer, to pass.If traceable to Old French, the etymon is more likely the walking or pacing seen at “PACE.”
Otherwise, a fine Edenic etymon for an opening, doorway or passageway is פתחPeSaK[H] (Genesis 18:1).The historical open door of the Exodus is relevant, even if פסחPe$aK[H](Passover) is spelled with a Samekh.
BRANCHES:The bilabial-dental family of openings is at “PATIO.”A paasy in Finnish is an entrance or access. This is like a mountain PASS in English.
A TRESSPASS may link up with פשיעהPiSHeeY[A]H , a (trespass – Exodus 22:8,crime of negligence).
In Japanese fesei is an injustice or wrong.פשעPeSH[A]h =is a transgression, crime.This PS term is a moral opening or gap, just as a PAUSEmay be an opening in time.PAUSE recalls פסחPa$a[K]H (to PASS or skip over) andפסקPa$aQ (to pause, interrupt). SKIP is an anagram of these last two Hebrew words, while PAUSE is the P-S sub-root:see “PAUSE”and "SKIP."
פהPeH (mouth – Exodus 4:10) is a biologicalפתחPe(S)a[K]H (opening) – see “OPEN.”
