STA(TION) S(H)eDTa[K]H Shin-Tet-Het
SHET-akh שטח [SH-DT à ST]
ROOTS: STATION is given the prolific, vague INDO-EUROPEAN "root" stā (to stand, with derivatives meaning "place or thing that is standing." "The oldest form of this 'root' is *steh," conclude the Semitically-challenged Indo-Europeanists . An H should mean a הHey or חHet in the Edenic source word, after an S and T.
שטח S(H)eDTa[K]H means extent, surface area, any space that is spread out, expanded or enlarged (II Samuel 17:19). משטה MiSHDTaH means place for spreading nets (Ezekiel 26:5).
שטח S(H)iDTa[K]H is stretched out, spread out or laid out in Aramaic-Syriac. Similar is Ethiopic and Arabic, where satkh is a "surface."
See entries like "SEAT" for ST Edenic etymons like שת SHahT ( to place, STATION, SET - Genesis 41:35), and שת SHahT, a foundation, SETTING or basis. A third fricative-dental root, seen in יסוד Yi$OAD, is also a foundation (Leviticus 4:7).
When an employee is away from his DESK, he is away from his STATION… his area or "place of standing." A DESK is also a spread-out surface, and it too is from שטח S(H)eDTa[K]H – after an M213 metathesis with dental shift – see "DESK." The etymology scholars make STATION a cognate of STABLE and the ST-B family to be seen at "STABLE."
BRANCHES: The alleged "cognate" HISTOGRAM comes from Greek histos, web, tissue—adds the AHD, " (that which is set up)." Set up by who? This is more logically a scrambled STH word about an extended area.
Another "cognate," STAITH means a stage, wharf or path along an embankment. It is from Anglo-Saxon staeth (shore), attributed to the IE base of "stand." STAITH is not a well-known word, but it illustrates the meaning of "a stretch of surface area" that the historical linguists should have stuck to before tossing scores of words into a dumpster called stā.
Some of the AHD's listed "cognates" include: APOSTACY, ARMISTICE, ARREST (see "ARREST"), ASSIST, ASTASIA, BESTEAD, CIRUMSTANCE, CONSIST, CONSTANT, CONSTITUTE, CONTRAST, COST (see "COST"), DESIST, DESTINE, DESTITUTE, DISTANT, ECSTASY, EPISTEMOLOGY, EPISTYLE, ESTABLISH (see "STABLE"), ESTANCIA, ESTATE, EXIST, EXTANT, HISTO-, INSIST, INSTANT, INSTITUTE, INTERSTICE, OBSTACLE, OBSTETRIC, OBSTINATE, OUST (see "EXIT"), PERSIST, PROSTATE, PROSTITUTE (see "PROSTITUTE"), PROSTYLE, REST (see "ARREST"), RESIST, RESTITUTE, RESTIVE, SHTETLE, SOLSTICE, STASIS, -STASY, STAGE, STAMEN, STANCE, STANCH, STANCHION, STAND, STANDARD, STANZA, -STASIS, -STAT, STATE, STATIC, STATICE, STATISTIC, STATIVE,STATO-, STATOR, STATUE, STATUS, STATUTE, STAY, STADDLE, STADHOLDER, STARLING, STATUS, STEAD, STEED, STET, STARBOARD, STEER (see "SATRAP"), STEER-2 (see "TAURUS"), STATION, STERN-2, STITHY, STOIC, STOOL, STORE (see "STORE"), STOUND, STOW, STUD, STYLITE, SUBSIST, SUBSTANCE, SUBSTITUTE, SUPERSTITION, SYSTEM, THERAVADA and UNDERSTAND.
