the PARAKEET has landed


A פרחת PaRaK[H]aT is a bird or a flying creature (Ezekiel 13:20). אפרח EPHRoa[K]H is a young bird (Deuteronomy 2:6). Did you hear the mimicry of a PARAKEET? The authorities guess that PARAKEET is a diminutive of “Pierre Peter.” History will decide who the birdbrains are.

Here is the relevent entry from our E-Word CD Dict. :

FLIGHT PaRa[K]H Pey-Resh-Het
Pah-RAHKH___פרח___[P-R-KH ? PH-L-GH]

ROOTS: German flug, to fly, helps us to consider FLIGHT as an FLG word, and to consider the end-T as non-historic. The AHD puts FL + dental (D,T) words, like FLEET (see FLEET) and FLOAT at the same alleged Indo-European (IE) “root”, pleu (to flow), that is given to FLIGHT. A young FLEDGE or FLEDGELING (learning to fly) is also in that flooded IE “root.” The D of FLEDGLING was added to better pronounce the FLG “flight” word. The pleu IE “root” not only includes the verb FLY, but the noun, the insect, as well. The AHD traces the FLY to Old English fleoge (a fly).

This FLG word fits the Phey-Resh-Het/ F-R-K[H] Semitic etymons below: Sryiac פרחתא PaRa[K]HTAh is a bird and an insect, a flying creature. פרח PaRaK[H] is to fly, blossom forth (Genesis 40:10), or to go arborne like a disease (Exodus 9:9). A פרחת PaRaK[H]aT is a bird or an flying creature (Ezekiel 13:20). אפרח EPHRoa[K]H s a young bird (Deuteronomy 2:6). Only a bilabial shift away is ברח BaRaK[H] (to break away and flee, take flight -- Genesis 31:22). See a family of these bilabial-liquid-guttural breakers at BREAK. More ברח BaRaK[H] , including an identically spelled barrier to escape at WRECK. רחף Ra[K]HaiPH (to hover, Robert Alter on Genesis 1:2) is a “flying” synonym of פרח PaRaK[H] by an M231 metathesis. See HOVER.
Because ח Het/[K]H is a “weak” letter רחף Ra[K]HaiPH may also be considered akin to רפרוף ReePHROOPH, fluttering, hovering, and as just a ר-ף Resh-Phey or liquid-bilabial word. The word is Middle Hebrew, but not a borrowing.

For just bilabial-liquid “flight” there is אבר AhBHahR (to fly, soar – Job 39:26), from אבר AyBHeR, wing, quill. אברה E’BH’RaH is a wing of feather.

Follow the פ-ל Phey-Lamed sub-root of separation at ARCHIPELAGO, PLEA, and PLOUGH.

BRANCHES: Firaakh is an Arabic chicken. אפרח EFRoaK[H], the young bird or FLEDGELING who is learning to fly, explains German vogel ( bird). The Edenic bilabial-liquid-guttural has been scrambled by an M132 metathesis, with Pey/P-Resh/R-Het/K[H] shifting to V-G-L. But German has other words from Pey-Resh-Het: Flug is flight; fluggewerden is a fledge and Flugzeug is an airplane אפרח EFRoaK[H] is used for chicks and chicken, so the bilabial-liquid PULLET, and chickens of French (poulet), Italian and Spansh (pollo), and the nasalized (extra N) frango of Portuguese are forms of our Pey/Phey-Resh-Het. PRK flying is like springing forth. The alleged IE “root” of SPRING is spergh (to move, hasten,spring). As is so often the case, the S before a 4–or-more consonant word is non-historic. With words like SPRINGBOK and SPRINGE (a snare), the N is also froma nasalizaion. The botanical sense of Pey-Resh-Het explains the flowering season of SPRINGTIME.

To the bilabial-liquid “fly,” “hover,” ‘wing” and “feather” words above, like רפרוף ReePHROOPH, fluttering, hovering, Regina Werling links these to Rumanian aripa (wing) and the Ainu butterfly: marewrew. She gathers the following “feather” words: bulu, Indonesian; fjer, Danish ; peri, Czech; perie , Slovak; pero, Bulgarian, Russian and Ukrainian; pioro, Polish; pluma, Spanish ; plume, French; and veer, Dutch . More relevant bilabial-liquids at BREAK, FLEET and “FRUCIFY”
