URBAN ADVENTURES II

Mar15


An important city north of Israel was צור TSOOR (Tyre, in present-day Lebanon).
The name means "fortress" or "citadel." Following up yesterday's post, you'd think this was a popular name for cities without high hilltops, like Greece, or forests, like Eastern Europe.

With the same dental-liquid sound, טירה DTeeRaH means TURRET or TOWER. That why T-R appears in ancient fortress -city names like TROY, TROYES, and TURIN.

The second entry down will tell you why CAIRO and KHARTOUM sound like a European COURT.

TOWER DTeeYRaH Tet-Yod-Resh-Hey

TEE-RAH___ _ _____טירה_____ ____[TR]

ROOTS: TOWER is from Old English tur and Latin turns (tower). Anglo Saxon torr is a tower or rock.

טירה DTeeYRaH is a TURRET, a fortified town, village or enclosure, a wall all around (Numbers 31:20). Related dental-liquids include: צור T(S)OOR is a rock of refuge (II Sam. 22:3); בצר BaTSaR is to fortify; מבצר MiBHTSaR is a fortress or stronghold (Numbers 32:36). Another צר Tsadi-Resh tower is the צריח TSaReeYa[K]H of Judges 9:49. The Edenic front of the neck is below. See related vertical TR words at TREE and TL words at TALL.

BRANCHES: Tower in French is tour, in Italian and Spanish is torre.

צורT(S)OAR is a flint (Exodus 4:25), צור T(S)OOR is a large rock (Exodus 33:21). Huge rocky redoubts recall Masada or the Rock of Gibraltar. טורה DTOORaH (a moun­tain) is Aramaic (Daniel 2:35).

The English word TOR means a tower, rock or high rocky hill. The TURTLE may be better understood as nature's living TURRET or fortification.

The TURNING TURRET of human anatomy, optimally a lovely TOWER, is the neck or throat, the צואר TSaVAhR (Genesis 41:42). The suggestion of dental-liquid synonyms is from Brian Beckman. Harkavy links . צואר TSaVAhR to TSOOR, to straighten, which is like ישר YaSHahR, straight – see this fricative-liquid at “SERIES.”

The ancient city of צור TSOOR (TYRE, southertn Lebanon) was surely a walled stronghold. related; TR cities like Tours, Troy, Troyes, and Turin are also likely named after fortifications, the earlier version of a gated community. TROY, in fact, has been linked to (צר Tsadi-Resh/TS-R ) “tower” terms like Latin turris and Greek tursis. The TROJANS built tower cities, and are linked to the ETRUSCAN civilization. (Al L. Ansley)

(IN)CARCER(ATE) QeeYR Koof-Yod-Res

KEER קיר [KR]

ROOTS: INCARCERATE is to imprison or confine. The IE “root” carcer means barrier, enclosure, prison, from a "Latin noun, probably borrowed from an unidentified source."

To identify the source (of this doubled K-R word of walling in), קיר QeeYR means a wall (Leviticus 14:37) or (walled) city (Isaiah 15:1). קרה QaRaH means to board up or seal.

Ancient cities were defended by walls, and became associated with them. See COURT.

The Jewish-Aramaic קרתא QaRTAh and קרת QereT (town, city) are identical with the Ugarittic and Phoenician words, thus cities with names like CARTHAGE.

BRANCHES: Other ancient walled cities include CAIRO and KHARTOUM. The official cognates of INCARCERATE are CANCEL, CHANCEL, and CHANCELLOR.

Italian citta (CITY) is more likely from קרתא QaRTAh (town, city) with a dropped R, than from Indo- European “root” kei-1 (to lie; bed, couch).

Welsh caer means a walled city. A different word meaning “wall” and “protection,”

חומה K[H]OAMaH, was reversed in the Japanese machi, town.
