Roots

The ASH or ASHES left after a fire is traced to Old English asce and the Indo-European “root” as (to burn, glow).

Germanic root urjon (to burn) is thought to come from a fabricated Indo-European “root” eus (to burn).

The original flame that ignited these roots is the Hebrew אש AiSH (fire; fever).

"The bush was consumed with fire, and the bush was not consumed.'—Exodus3:2.


Branches

Where there's fire there's   עשן   [A]SHaN (smoke) - not merely a grayness.  Where there are ASHES  or ASH cans, there may be an     אשפה ASHPaH (garbage dump)  where refuse is burned .

Cognates of ASH at Indo-European “root” as include ARID, ARDENT, ARDOR, ARSON and AZALEA.

Cognates listed at Indo-European “root” eus include ADJUST, COMBUSTION, EMBER, EURUS, UREDO and URN (see URN.).

Several of these terms from Latin urere (to burn) might also be traced to  OoWR (fire) or  OaR (light, shine – see AURA). Basque sua (fire) reverses   אש AISH.  Similarly,reverse  אש AiSH for Chinese shau (to burn).  See ASIA.
