CO(R)D K[H]OODT Het-Vav-Tet
KHUTE חוט [K[H]-V-DTàKRD]
ROOTS: CORD is a rope-like string that binds things together, recently used mostly for electronic wiring – as in a CORDLESS phone or computer mouse. The AHD traces it to Greek khordē (gut, cord), and to the imagined Indo-European "root" gherә (gut, entrail). They erroneously make "hernia" a cognate of CORD.
The GUTS are from גיד GeeYD (sinew) – see GUITAR. Dried animal sinews were the sturdy, elastic CORDS of antiquity, and resonant guitar strings.
The idealized Greek etymon above is a liquidized (extra R) corruption; the German below is the better link in the chain back to Edenic. German Kette is a necklace, chain, mountain range (mountains or ornaments strung together). Mountain ranges become important below.
The KT German word, with no R, is more clearly from a guttural-dental cousin of גיד GeeYD: חוט K[H]OODT, thread, cord (Judges 16:12). The Vav/V allowing the liquidization, addition of an R after a guttural, is seen below at "CORPSE." Similar in other "cord" words is a non-historic R. The oneness of ACCORD and CONCORD are from אחד EKHaD (one). The "of one heart" is bad poetry and sloppy etymology. See "CORE" form the heart of this matter.
For a finer חוט [K]HOODT, see "CHAETA."
BRANCHES: Stringing together CORD words includes CHORD, CORDON, HARPSICHORD and CORDAGE. CORDING and CORDED is the verb of binding, and חוט K[H]OODT is a verb of binding and joining in Aramaic, and in Ezra 4:12. Arabic חאט K[H]a'ADT (to sew) leads to the "ACCOUTERMENTS" entry."
The confused etymology for ACCORDIAN includes both the Germanic CHORD and a French "harmony" word with the mistaken "of one heart" idea.
CORDUROY and CORDS of wood are not about rope, but the laying crosswise as if with lengths of rope.
CORDILLERA is a term used in major mountain ranges, especially of the Andes and North America. Think chain and necklace, as in German Kette above. The mountains are "strung together" just like another Edenic "rope" word, חבל K[H]eBHeL ("district" --Deuteronomy 3:4), where the outlying settlements are economically and politically "tied" to a regional capital city.
