MIGHT M’OaD Mem-Aleph-Dalet
MIH-O(D)TE_____אמץ_____[MOD à MOT]
ROOTS: Anglo-Saxon miht (power) may or may not derive from Indo-European (IE) “root” magh (to be able, to have power). If it doesn't, one possibility is MIGHT (the GH being silent) might be an M-T word, but Ben Johnson, etc. who made up spelling conventions couldn’t find an M-T source, and did not want this word confused with “mite.”
1. אמץ OaMeTS is “might, strength” -- B-Y, courageous (Deuteronomy 3:28) or firm, obstinate (Deuteronomy 15:7). The Slavic derivatives below bear these out.
2. מאד M’OaD (force, strength or "might" in Deuteronomy 6:5).
3. One may also consider an M231 metathesis of עצם GHoTSeM, might (Deuteronomy 8:17)
There are two more nasal-dental words of strength: אמת EMeT (firmness -- Psalms 19:10 -- see “ETMOLOGY”), and מתן MeTeN, firmness, with מתן MoaTaiN (“loins,” hips, waist … the seat of strength -- Genesis 37:34
BRANCHES: MIGHT is allegedly a cognate of MAY and MAIN. See alternative Hebrew etymons at "MACHINE" and "MAGIC" - two other terms listed as cognates at IE “root” magh.
German “might” is Macht.
מאד M’OaD can mean “very” and “exceedingly” (Ben-Yehuda), or with much quantity (Genesis 27:33). "A lot" in Portuguese is muito. Perhaps the L in MULTI- is non-historic. The reconstructed IE “root” of words like MULTITUDE means “strong, great” fitting Mem-Aleph-Dalet. Mottomo means “most” and “extremely” in Japanese.
