Roots

The ASP, from Greek aspis, is a poisonous snake with a horned variety.

צפע   TSePH[A]h  is an ASP in Isaiah14:29.  צפעני TSiPH[O]ANeeY is an adder in Isaiah11:8.

The    שפפון SHiPHeePHOAN (viper, etc.) is the poisonous horned snake in Genesis49:17.

  The Tsadi-Peh element covers the creature’s distinctive hood – see TOP.

  (Remember that Shin-Phey may be read as SH-PH or like the S-P of ASP.)

The אכשוב AKH-SHOOBH (viper) of Psalms140:4 is sim­ilar. (Just drop the  . אכ Aleph-Kahf/AKH prefix found in the Hebrew words for the spider, rat and mouse.)

There's also a reverse of   פשן PeS eN (poisonous snake). It is rendered "asp" in Isaiah11:8 of the King James version - "and the suckling child shall play on the hole of the asp ..."

All the snakes above contain the S and P of ASP, or vari­ations like SH, TS, PH or BH.

It seems strange that the 3rd root letter in Edenic, [A], may have become the 1st letter in it’s post-Babel transformation. This did happen with scores of words, even WORD (German vort)  from Edenic   דבר Da[V]aR (word, statement).


Branches

The S-P root raises its venemous head in words like ANTI-SEPTIC, SEPTIC TANK and SEPSIS. All these are at­tributed to (Greek) SEPS, a poisonous snake common in classical literature.

Snake in Arabic is tsouban. Qshap is a rattlesnake for the Chumash Indians (California).

Polish waz (snake) reversesthe SP/BH or fricative-bilabial. Snake is savha in Malay:Bouton.

See PYTHON and SERPENT.
