HAUN(T)   [K]HaNaH     Het-Noon-Hey
ROOTS:   Old French hanter is to frequent or resort to; a HAUNT is a place often visited or stayed in.
 After a nasal shift, Old French has ham, a village or home, like the Old English source of HOME.

חנה [K]HaNaH is to encamp, incline or settle (Exodus 19:2).חנה    מ  Ma[K]HaNeH is a camp (Genesis 32:22). Where to camp?   הנה HeeNaH (here – Joshua 3:9) or HeeNaiH (there – Genesis 18:9).

 For relevant guttural-nasals beyond Het-Noon,  קן   QahN  is a nest, dwelling or chamber, see 'HEN;'  כאן   K'AhN is the heimish (homey in Yiddish)  preposition 'here,'   and  the core sub-root of  שכן   SHaKHeN (to dwell) is Khaf-Noon, see ENSCONCE.

Reversing to נ-ח   Noon-Het,  נוח  is  NOOa[K]H, to settle down  (Genesis 8:4). 
The guttural-nasal    כ-נ   Khaf-Noon root, כון  KOON, is related, as seen in     תכונה  T'KHOONaH, dwelling, place, seat (Job 23:3).          כןKaiN, base (Exodus 30:2) again shows that the thematic meanings of words are the province of poets and musicians, not of spelling-limited pedants and lexicographers.
BRANCHES: The IE 'root' for HAUNT is kei (to lie, bed, couch, night's lodging, home), extended in  tkei (to settle, dwell, be home).  Farsi (IE) for 'abode' is khane.  The relevant terms listed at these loosely defined roots include BOHEMIAN, CEMETERY, HAME, HAMLET, INCUNABULA, and HOME.  HOME is from Greek keimai (to lie down, rest) which recalls   חנה   K[H]aNaH (to incline, settle down). Reverse Het-Noon to Noon-Vav-Het, NOOaK[H] for a word that means 'to rest,' 'settle down' or 'to lie'  (Genesis 8:4). COMA is from Greek 'deep sleep, which is more likely of obscure origin' (AHD).

In Spanish cama is a bed, and Camilla is a stretcher. The similar, built-in opposite of Noon-Vav-Het נוע resting is Noon-Vav-Ayin movement (Cain was aנע   N[A]h/ NaGH, a wanderer – Genesis 4:12).

Back to guttural-nasal resting and settling:
Beginning with the Arabic tent, chayma, many homes, haunts or CAMPUSES can be heard as coming from Het-Noon (the Het gutturalized, and the nasal shifted to M). The Latin campus is a level plain or field for habitation, for camping out (even with an eventual city). In Genesis 26:27 the Het-Noon verb of making camp is situated in a level wadi. CAMP has no IE 'root'. In Spanish a camp may be put up in the campo (field); and in French in the campagne (countryside).

Another KN 'home' word is, now thought to originate with Latin cannis (a dog or CANINE, the domestic animal, and one who can live in a KENNEL).   Can is a house in Nawat, an American Indian dialect in El Salvador. The alternative to Het-Noon is the    קן  QahN  (an animal cage or compartment on Noah's ark) above, also at KENNEL.

A tent in Arabic is chayma,in Swahili it's hema, and inIndonesian kemah. Huone is a room in Finnish. A nasalized NoaK[H] may be Chinese ning(宁)X482   (peace, tranquility). For the time of day named for Noon-Het tranquility, see NIGHT.
A Noon-guttural antonym for these KN terms of settlement is Noon-AyinorNAGH (to be unstable, to wander about – Genesis 4:12).
One expects the Germanic guttural to go soft. German has words like  heim (home), Heimat (homeland), heimisch  (local, domestic), Heimkehr (return home), Heimlich (clandestine), heimlos (homeless) and heimsuchen (to haunt).

Hawaiian nohona (a dwelling) and hoho (Hawaiian verbofdwelling, taking up residence and staying) relate to (a reversal of)  חנה [K]HaNaH (to encamp, settle down).

There is no IE 'root' for INN (hotel), only an identical Old English term.  The Modern Greek inn, hani, suggests  חנה [K]HaNaH (to encamp, especially after a journey – Exodus 13:20) .  The same Hey-Noon of encampments, the same source for the Modern Hebrew word for parking one's car.  In Vietnamese quan is a district, a  שכון  SHiKOON.

Finnish kana is a HEN.   [Mikko Nuuttila]  The animal that roosts or makes 'camp'  (  חנה  [K]HaNaH) and sets her nest ( קן  QahN -- Deuteronomy. 22:6) among humans is the rooster's mate:  the HEN.  The AHD does trace HEN to an IE 'root'  kan.  But they define it as 'to sing.'  We shall accept the etymology of Semitically-challenged scholars when chickens sing.

German Gemächlich,comfortable, easy, matches נוחNOA'ahK[H], comfortable, at rest (after a nasal shift, Noon/N to M). German
Neige  (slope, decline) and Neigung  (incline, dip) follows the settling down to rest  theme in   Noon-Het words, particularly   נחת NaK[H]ahT, to descend, sink, come down (Jeremiah 21:13),  and  נחת NaK[H]aiT, a descending.

We can now understand that  כן     KaiN, yes, can mean 'based in fact, a settled issue.'
נכון   NaKHOAN  is correct, true, accurate, no? See YES.
It is now clear why Sumerian gin  is '(to be) permanent; to confirm, to establish (in legalcontexts), to verify; (to be) true. The Akkadian equivalents are kânu and  kīnu.
CAN (able) may be closer to this theme of establishment, than to 'knowledge,' as the current  etymologies insist.
 Sumerian gune is a place and cult centre.    [SW]
