Welcome To El Casa Sukkah


SHACK    $OOKaH    Sin-Vav-Kahf-Hey


ROOTS: The dictionaries are not sure where SHACK (crude cabin, shanty) came from, but they offer "said to be a contraction of Mexican jacal, from Aztec xacalli (wooden hut)."  שך SoaKH (which may be read SHoaKH) is a booth, pavilion or "tabernacle" in Lamentations 2:6. SoaKH is a booth (Psalms 27:5), and the more common סכה   SOOKaH is a booth or tabernacle. Leviticus 23:42 charges Israelites to "live in booths" for seven days on the Festival of Booths or Tabernacles.   סך $oaKH is a hut or tent (Psalms 27:5). Edenic has KS and SK CASINGS and SACKS – see “SACK” and “ENCASE.” Reversing Samekh-Khaf/$-KH,  כסה KHa$aH means covering and concealing.


BRANCHES:  .   סך $oaKH can also mean a thicket.שכך  SaKHAKH is to screen or cover.  Theש-כ   Sin-Khaf  is a temporary shelter from the elements, likeסוכה   $OOKaH and SHACK.  See ENSCONCE and SCENE for extensions of these SK cover-shelter-housing terms; see HOUSE for KS reversals of same. At “HOUSE” those related words, like  ח-ס Het-Samekh words of protection and refuge, are also fricatives with (softer) gutturals.  Reversing the S-K of our Edenic etymons produces Spanish casa (house). It occurred to  Kenneth H. Ryesky that KIOSK  (a small commercial booth) may be from the same K-S, S-K construction as theסכה   SUKKAH (holiday tabernacle or booth). Webster's has Turkish kösk coming from Persian kushk (portico) -- which is a protective porch.
