a la MODE

Feb08

If you're a tourist, only take METER cabs. The fare is up to מדה MaDaH, measurement, not what the cabbie thinks he can get you for.
In Israel that's a מונית MONIT, a taxi that is מנה MaNaH, counts the AMouNt.

In today's entry from the E-Word CD Dictionary, we find that the language scholars somehow confuse M-D measurement with M-N counting.


METER MeeDaH Mem-Dalet-Hey
MEEDT-AH_______מדה__ ____[MD ? MT]

ROOTS: Old English metan (to measure out), Latin metiri (to measure) and Greek metron (measure, rule, length, proportion) are the topsoil roots of words like METE, METER, MEDIATE, and MODE.

The given Indo European “root”s are me (to measure) and med (to take appropriate measures).

The deeper M-D or M-T Edenic roots include מד MahD (measure - Job 11:9) and מדה MeeDaH (measure, size, characteristic - Exodus 26:2). אמצע EMTS[A]h is the middle or MEAN, from Mem-Tsadi-Ayin (middle)– in Aramaic and Syriac BRANCHES: מדד MoaDahD is to measure; מדד MeeDaiD is to survey; and מדד MeDeD is a measurement.

Cognates of METER at IE “root” me include COMMENSURATE, DIAMETER, DIMENSION, GEOMETRY, IMMENSE, ISOMETRIC, MAHOUT (from Sanscrit), MEAL, MENOPAUSE, METER, -METER, -METRY, METRONOME, MONTH, MOON (see MOON), PIECEMEAL, SEMESTER, and TRIMESTER.

(See MOON and MONEY for Hebrew MN words of counting. Not to be confused, as the AHD does, with מ-ד M-D words of measuring.)

The following words are attributed to IE “root” med: ACCOMODATE, COMMODE, EMPTY, IMMODERATE, IMMODEST, MEDICAL, MEDICATE, MEDICINE, MEDICO, MEDITATE, METHEGLIN, MODAL, MODE, MODEL, MODERN, MODEST, MODICUM, MODIFY, MODULATE, MODULE, MOLD-, MOOD-, MOTE-, MODIOLUS, MUST, MUTCHKIN, and REMEDY.

To measure in Saami (Lapp) is mittidit. The מ-ד Mem-Daled subroot of measurement appears at MIDGET. One arrives at the MIDDLE of MIDPOINT only by measuring. Besides all the MD/T measurement terms in English, like AMID and MID, there are many IE words like German moitten (middle), Spanish medio (mid) and French metre (meter). MEASUREMENT is a MENTAL activity. All the MENTAL, and MIND words might be M-D words too, if the N is nasalized (extra, not historic, added to aid pronunciation).
