[D-TS → D+N S]
DANCE (to move to music or to leap) is from
Old French danser;
No Indo-European root is known.
דץ DahT(S) is defined by Ben-Yehudah as to
rejoice, dance or leap -- (Job41:14). The N of DANCE
was added in the common phenomenon of linguistics and Babel-babble called
DANCE is danse (French), tanssi
(Finnish),Tanz (German), taniec (Polish) and tants ( Russian
and Yiddish retaining the original TS ending. Because DANCE was
widely borrowed, the variations are slight throughout Europe. Dutch, the
Scandinavian languages and even Turkish all spell it dans.
Irish da m hsa (dance) nasalizes דץ DahTS with an M, not an N. Scottish Gaelic, however, nasalizes
it with an N twice: da nn sa (dance).
Spanish Flamenco dancing may be
from Semitic dancing, but their word for dance is different. Baile (dance)is
like BALLET. The Spanish were thinking more about mixed movement than
joyful leaping see BALL.
