Sorry to make people update their Edenic CD Dictionaries, but here is yet another new entry:
Give-OOR-ah___גבורה__[G-BH-R --> BR + BH-R]
ROOTS:There is no Indo-European(IE) “root” or home for the BRAVE.
BRAVE is 1) courageous, or 2) a warrior
(especially a Native American). BRAVURA is the display of exceptional skill and daring by a performer.
One might exclaim BRAVO!
Spanish bravois guessed to come from the Middle Latin bravus, (cutthroat villain). The assumption of Western scholars is that valorous strength must emanate from bloodthirsty barbarity, rather than the upright conviction of defending one's ideals or home.
גבורהG'BHOORaH means power, strength, might (Exodus 32:18); in Aramaic and later Hebrew it means valor and heroism.
גבורGiBoaR is a mighty one (Genesis10:9),גברGeBHeR is a man or mighty man(see“BARON” and“VIRILE”).
As in BARON and VIRILE, the initial גGimel/G ofGVR was lost. In BRAVURA the dominantב-ר B-R core is reduplicated.
BRANCHES:The גGimel/G ofGVR should have appeared somewhere, despite the mist of millennia since the species-wide neuro-linguistic disturbance one may call The Tower of Babel.
That גGimel/G may be at the end of the word BRAG, which is of " unknown origin." Yes, BRAGGING is a fool's BRAVERY, but on the street they are often confused.There are more missing or shifted Gimels/Gs in the sample B R A V E world words below:

Irish crógacht (brave), like other words linked to "courage" or French coeur (heart) are seen at the "CREED" entry.
When Moses tells Joshua to be "strong, חזקK[H]aZaK, and of good courage,אמץAMaTS," in Deuteronomy 31:7, the Armenians were listening. Their word for "brave" is խիզախkhizakh. Even better, the Georgian "brave" is მამაციmamats’i.
The Samoan "brave" is matatoa.
For gevaltic (wonderful in Yiddish) forms ofגבורהG'BHOORaH, see "CRAFT."For the manlier derivatives, see "VIRILE," and for the forceful forms ofגבורהG'BHOORaH, see"FORCE,” “GRAVITY”and "VIGOR."
Twitter was overtweeted, so I bravely pasted this here:
