Roots

BEAKER is linked to Old Norse bikarr (a cup) and to Latin bicarium (winecup). In German and Yiddish there's bekher (wine cup).

 One has to reverse the bilabial-guttural of BEAKER,  but there the are two Edenic “cup” words that  also contribute to the source of BEAKER: 1)   קבעת QooB[A]hT  (Isaiah 51:22),  2)  גביע GaBHeeY[A]h (goblet --  Genesis 44:17 – see CUP  ).   The BEAKER and another vessel, the PITCHER, are traced to Greek bikos (a wine jar). Double the Bet-Koof/ B-K root of vacuum words (see 'VACUUM") and you get בקבק  BaQBOOQ, the jar, cruse or bottle ofIKings14:3.  Of the related B-K (bilab­ial-guttural) words in Hebrew, פך   PahKH (flask, vial) is closer to BEAKER size.  See BUCKET for larger containers like the BAG and BOX.   The "beaker" in Isaiah51:22 is   קבעת QOOB[A]h’aT.

 As stated above,  the K-B root has to be reversed before one hears a  BEAKER.


Branches

The vessel known to German and Yiddish speakers is Becher (cup).   The spout of the BEAKER recalls a BEAK, a bird's mouth. Latin bucca (mouth) is the source of words like DEBOUCHE (to emerge to an open place). Peh (mouth) is a biological Pe(S)a[K]H (opening) – see PASSAGE.  Bouche is a French mouth.  PeH (mouth – Exodus 4:10) could be pronounced PECK (what a bird's mouth does) with a typical Hey-Koof/ H to K shift of gutturals. [Greek herpein is to Creep; shish .Kebab is the Turkish and Arabic rendition of HahBH HahBH (roast).]

For the piercing, breaking open,  action of the bilabial-guttural BEAK, see PICK.  BiQeeY[A]h is a fissure, crack or cleft (Isaiah 22:9); PoQ[A]h and  BoQ[A]h both mean to split, crack or cleave.

A bottle in Chinese is pi(n)g; the Chinese WOK might be another BK or VK receptacle.
