BIG is allegedly from
the Germanic base bugjn (swollen, thick, big) and the so-called IE
root bhu (to blow out).
BoGaiR, to grow up, is related to Syriac, to Hebrew BiKHOAaR (firstborn
Genesis 43:33) or to Arabic balagha, he reached maturity. Large בג Bet-Gimel terms include: 1.; בגרות BaG(ROOT), maturity. 2. Reverse
Gimel-Bet/Bhet for גבה
GAB HoaaH, tall, high (Genesis7:19) and significant (Ecclesiastes5:7).
Another BG reversal is גבר
grown man. גבה GoaBHaH is height (I Samuel 17:4) or pride. (Antonyms include
BaK[H]OOR (young man) and פג PaG (unripe fruit, immaturity). 3. As for the Indo-European root, נפח NePaK[H] is to blow out, swell up (Genesis 2:7). The
rounded apple ,
תפוח TaPOOaK[H], looks blown
Igbo ( Nigeria ) okwo means big, reversing bilabial-guttural to better
resemble the Edenic גב
Gimel-Bhet/G-BH. Okwo reversed the W-guttural of WAX (to gradually
grow biggger) from Old English weaxan Words for grow that are
cognates of our WAXING from בגר Bet-Gimel-Resh (to mature, ripen) shifted in bilabial and guttural include: Danish and Norwegian vok se, German wach sen , Swedish vaxa and Yiddish vak sen .
buyuk is large; Swahili kubwa is large; Thai gow is
old; the Malay varients bakeh, bagewa, and bagut all mean
large; Norwegian bugge is a big man. Arabic kibir (big) is an
M213 metathesis of Bet-Gimel-Resh. A metathesis of BGR, גביר
GiBHeeYR is a master or rich man. In Taino bajari is a title of
respectful distinction, while bo means big or greatness.
Gimel-Bhet-Resh means heavy, (see GRAVITY),
but it is a fine source for big.
To reach Japanese hyoko ( elevation)
from GoaBHaH (height), one must do the following: Reverse the Edenic, silence
the Bhet (as often happens) and shift the guttural.
German Gipfel (summit, top, peak)
might also be from a S-B and the following reversed BG terms: גבע
GeV[A]h, hill; גבה GaBHaH,
tall; and GoaBHaH, height.
בגר BoGeR (mature) is behind the
words for large in Malay dialects, like bakeh (Salayer) and bagewa
(Salibabo Island). BIGNESS doesnt appear to be about being blown up and out,
but נפח NaFahK[H] and core root פוח P OOaK[H] ( to blow -- Songs 2:17) does in Japanese fuku
, blow, and fugu, a blowfish.
