TECHNOLOGY is credited to the Greek tekhne
(art, skill);the alleged Indo-European root is teks (to weave...fabricate).
TaKH is a stitch, and perhaps the source of (S)TITCH. TeKH
means craft according to the Hebrew-EnglishLexiconoftheBible. TaQaiN is to make straight, repair or TINKER (Ecclesiastes1:15; 7:13). To TINKER (repair - TKN → TNK)
has no known origin, not unusual for a word coming from a metathesis of the
Edenic. Txukun(du) is to fix in Basque, the language with
"no known affinities."
T'KHOONaH means arrangement, order, structure, preparation
or astronomy. TaKHaN is to regulate, measure, formulate a program (IIKings12:12; Isaiah40:2, 3). ToaKHeN is
measurement or content (Exodus5:18). TaKHNeeYT is a
measurement, plan, program or TECHNIQUE. The ARCHITECT'S plan is the sense in Ezekiel43:10.
TaK[H]aM is to set
limits. The Indo-European root makes the TECHNICIAN a cognate of the DACHSHUND. Other
cognates listed at Indo-European root teks are CONTEXT, PRETEXT, SUBTLE,
TECHNICAL, TECTONIC, TILLER, and TOIL. TOKEN may link up with the
Tahf-Khaf-Noon terms above, and with the later DeGeM, model, example.
an extension of TEXT. The Greek tekton (carpenter, builder) does not
weave, but does all the planning and measuring (and repairing) seen in the
Hebrew etymons above. Modern Greek tehni (art) recalls the original
Greek skill sense of things TECHNICAL. TINKERING with nature in the lab
appears in words meaning artificial: Finnish keinotekoinen,
Modern Greek technitos and Japanese jinkootekina. German
Technik, engineering, is one of the many hundreds
of borrowings of this word.
