Roots

BIG is allegedly from the Germanic base bugjn (swollen, thick, big) and  the so-called IE “root” bhu (to blow out).

בגר 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   גב Gimel-Bet/Bhet for גבה GAB Hoa’aH, tall, high (Genesis7:19) and significant (Ecclesiastes5:7). Another BG reversal is  גבר GeBH(eR), a 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 out.”


Branches

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 .

  Turkish 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 doesn’t 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.

See GIBBON, GROW and HIGH.

Word 'big', is similar to Turkish 'büyük' . It is completely same meaning and sound. Also on others Turkish dialects is said as 'biig'.
