The last word on PORE (an opening) is Greek poros
(passage). Latin aperire, to open, is traced to Indo-European root wer 5 (to cover see COVER).
Aramaic PeeYRAh is a ditch; the Hebrew is PeeYR . פער P[A]haR is a space or gap; פעור P[A]hOOR
is wide open; and פער Pa[A]hR is to open wide (Isaiah5:14
) or to PRY (see below). An extension of this Pey-Resh root is [K]HaPHOAR
(to excavate or make holes, passages or channels). A GOPHER is natures
prolofic K[H]oPHeR (digger) see GOPHER.
Just Pey-Hey is a mouth or opening, see OPEN. The
Pey-Resh sub-root in PeReTS (to make a BREACH) is at BURST.
To PRY something open, as with a crowbar,
is thought to be a back-formation of prize or prise (a lever). The AHD
therefore has PRY from the Indo-European root ghend (to seize, take). The most
basic bilabial shift involves B and P. BOAR is a pit
BORE. At BORE are sound-alike bilabial-liquid hole words in
Sumerian and Latvian. To open or release in Sumerian is buru, and in
Latvian: veru. PR openings such as OPPORTUNITY, PORCH, POROUS, PORT and
PRY should all be related see BREACH.
to PL, PYLON is from Indo-European pule (gate -'Greek noun of obscure origin")
A RAVINE, RIFT or RIP is merely the reverse of the PR root here
see TROPHY. Bilabial-liquid opening words from Latin aperire
include: APERTIF, APERTURE, OVERT and OVERTURE.`
abertura is an aperture, abierto means overt and abrir is
to open. The dentista tells you to abra or open wide (the meaning of פער Pa[A]hR).
