Roots

ASIA is pronounced much like the Hebrew term  אש AiSH (fire - Deuteronomy 4:24). Dr. Shipley's Dictionary of Word Origins (p. 144) cites an ancient Assyrian marker inscribed Asu, "land of the rising sun." We call this landmass ASIA, and the direction of the fiery sunrise we name EAST.


Branches

The Japanese words for morning, asa, and morning sun asahi,  reinforce the morning light as fire image from Edenic fire, אש AiSH.   Christians celebrate the rising Son at EASTER. Su is fire in Basque; a reversal of אש AiSH.  S hao is to burn, bake or roast in Chinese. In Japan, another "land of the rising sun," asa is morning. EOSINE is red dye; COMBUSTION is thought to come from a fabricated Indo-European “root” eus (to burn). For other links to AiSH, see ASH. 

The oldest root for EAST is based on Sanskrit ushas, dawn. The T in EAST simply means towards the firey dawn (in the east). 

Where there’s fire, there’s smoke:  עשן   [A]SHahN (Genesis 15:17).       Edenic smoke is from  two elements:

a)  עשש   [A]SHaSH  (to decay, or to be consumed – Psalms 6:8, 31:11 and b)    שנה SHaNaH, change (I Kings 14:2 – see CHANGE.    Smoke signifies chemical change, whether  by burning fire or decay.

 For the redness of morning, see DAWN.  For the land of the setting sun, see EUROPE.

See BURN, FIRE and IGNITION.
