The Sound and Sense of Scraping

Dec26


 

A   גרב GeReBH  is a smooth, bald patch on the skin

as if shaved by as if shaved by a גלב GaLaBH (barber)

-- see GLABROUS.

One doesn’t quite shave with a garden hoe or מגרפה  MiGRayPHaH or a חרב  K[H]eReBH,  blade of a sword.

 But the music and meaning are there for anyone with ears and something between them.  For these similar guttural-liquid-bilabials, (throat/tongue/lips or G, K[H]/R,L/BH.PH)
 ee SCRAPER and CARVE.
------------------------

Relax. I haven't shaved since 7/19/97.
