Roots

 The second element of CONVEY, like VIA and WAY, are thought to come from a fabricated Indo-European “root” wegh (to go, transport in a vehicle).

The infinitive   בוא Bet-Vav-Aleph, BoWE means to come, similar in Akkadian and Arabic. בא BAh (go – Genesis 7:1), מביא May[V]eeYE (bring -- Genesis 6:17) and הבא Hah[V]Ay (take -- Genesis 43:16) are among the many grammatical forms of בא BoWe.  הביא Hey[V]eeYE is best lined up with CONVEY, as the Hiphil form means “he brought in, led to or caused to.”


Branches

The more sensible half of the cognates listed under this Indo-European “root” include ALWAYS, AWAY, CONVECTION, DEVIATE. DEVIOUS, ENVOY, FOY, INVEIGH, OBVIOUS, PREVIOUS, TRIVIAL, VECTOR, VEHICLE, VIADUCT, VOGUE, VOYAGE, WAG, WAGON and WAIN.  See VIA.
