COMMENT:

3 words are known to be near-universal.  Those who deny the monogenesis of language have no explanation. “Mama” and “papa” words, they guess, are from baby talk. That is crazy talk.  At least half the words for a parent should be “gaga.”

And there is no sound for a SACK or CASE, nor any reason that most S-K and K-S words should all mean “concealment.” Unless, God forbid, sound and sense, music and meaning was hard-wired into the homo sapiens brain when the species had a Proto-Earth language program at some primordial “Eden.”

SOCK is universal for the SACK worn on our feet. SOCKS may have been developed by one culture, and borrowed by others. But it is absurd to think that the bag or sack was invented by anyone, and had to be borrowed…like the word “radio.”

The Random House online dict. on SACK: 'large bag,' O.E. sacc  (W.Saxon), sec  (Mercian), sæc  (Old Kentish) 'large cloth bag,' also 'sackcloth,' from P.Gmc. *sakkiz  (cf. M.Du. sak,  O.H.G. sac,  O.N. sekkr,  ut Goth. sakkus  robably is directly from Gk.), an early borrowing from L. saccus  (cf. O.Fr. sac,  Sp. saco,  It. sacco ), from Gk. sakkos,  from Semitic (cf. Heb. saq  'sack') 

A score of KT-TK bag words were left out.  Some of these might belong here, as Latin Taurus (bull, ox) and Aramaic toar (bull, ox) had come from the Edenic SHOAR (bull, ox). But there is a Hebrew Bible KD word for a leather bag or “pitcher,” so guttural-dentals were left out. They belong with entries like KIT and CADDY.
