Taking Sides


Adam's rib wasn't a rib, and Jacob was LISTING after his angelic wrestling match, not merely limping.

LIST (tilt) TSeL[A]h Tsadi-Lamed-Ayin
TSEL-ah צלע [TS-L ? LST] ROOTS: LIST and LISTEN are given the Indo-European “root” of kleu-1 (to hear). They are together because listening involves listing, tilting or leaning over to a side to hear something.

The "hearing" sense of this etymology is so poor, that one might consider an etymon of leaning over to one side with an L and ST, even if it has been reversed from TS-L. צלע TSeL[A]h is a side, poorly rendered “rib” in Adam’s anesthetized operation in Genesis 2:21 which separated the human’s male and female sides (yin/yang aspects). More like LISTING is the verb form of צלע Tsadi-Lamed-Ayin, which has Jacob limping, favoring one side, after his long bout of Greco-Roman wrestling in Genesis 32:32.

This is the LISTING, the perilously tipping over to one side, of a ship that could sink.

צל TSeL, a shadow, favors the dark side, in depicting merely one dimension or side of something illuminated. A few other צ-ל Tsadi-Lamed words that make up a family of SIDE words include the following : אציל ATSeeYL is an extremity (on the side – Isaiah 41:9), אציל AhTSeeYL is the wing of a building (Ezekiel 41:8), אצל ATSahL is to put aside (Numbers 11:17), אצל AyTSeL means side or beside (I Samuel 20:41), הציל HeeTSeeYL is “he rescued,” but this can now be better understood as “he put aside…out of harm’s way – see STEAL. Sidling, putting aside surrepticiously , putting away nout of sight (see STEAL) are all about that צ-ל Tsadi-Lamed side-image, the shadow – see “SILHOUTTE.”

BRANCHES: As seen at “SILHOUTTE,” a person is עצל[A]hTSeL, LAZY, because he’d rather rest in the shade, צל TSeL, then make hay while the hot sun is shining. The Tsadi-Lamed is being read backwards – see LAZY. Listed cognates of the entry’s IE “root” include LEER, LOUD and UMLAUT, so the “root” should sink like a badly LISTING ship. For the written LIST, see the liquid-fricative root at RESUME. There is no IE “root” for LISTLESS, but one possibility is LeSHeD, vigor, vitality.

Back to Tsadi-Lamed/TS-L as “side:”
The side of a man or beast, the flank in Irish is slios, in Old Irish is sliss, in Welsh is ystlis. These are related to Latin stlâtus and Iâtus, wide. , source of LATIUDE (the distance side-to-side). [FA]

Many of the global words for "side” that seem to have a Tsadi-Lamed/TS-L have an added letter on the side. Such words include Bengali mazole, Maltese pistula, and Quechua (Inca) pistula.

The Arabic name for the multi-ribbed fruit of the date tree is tarich. Tarich seems to have changed from צלע T(S)eLaGH (rib, side plank) – the fricative, liquid and guttural all shifting. Polish dzial (part) also seems to be from צלע TZeL[A]h (part, rib, side) – requiring only a dental shift. If you are looking for words from צד TSahD, the usual word for side , see SIDE. Other global ‘side” words are at entries like COAST and EXIT.

Posted from Sefad, where I am trying to get an Edenics presence into the legendary Academy-Cave of Shem and Ever (son and grandson of Noah) where Edenic was re-taught to Abraham who had become a Chaldean after The Tower of Babel.
