Are Acclaimed Hebrew Dictionaries Better Than Edenics ? Look to the ant.


While the גמל     GaMaL,  CAMEL   is a large work animal  for עמל GHaMaL (work), a tiny hard-working animal is the נמלה NiMaLaH (ant -- Proverbs 6:6.   נמלה NiMaLaH may be combining נמוך NaMOOKH (lowly -- see MEEK) and עמל [A]MaL (work).

Intitial Noon/N is rarely part of a sub-root. So 'work' may be seen as the heart of the NiMaLaH (ant).

Ernest David Klein has the Post Biblical Hebrew word נמל NaMaL  (port) magically coming from a 'metathesis from Greek limen, harbor'…a cognate of leimon, grassy meadow and Latin limus, slime.  Instead of this slop -- in a top-rated Hebrew dictionary --  it can be suggested that the word for 'port' ( נמל NaMaL ) came from the same Semitic source word for nature's porter or stevedore, the   נמלהNiMaLaH (ant).

A PORT, a bay, gulf or haven , is about a topographical breach or מפרץ   (Mi)PHRaTS, gulf.  But a  נמל NaMaL, seaport, is about a work place.
