Roots

Anglo-Saxon her and German hier are thought to come from a fabricated Indo-European “root” ko (this). See THIS.

הרי HaRaY is defined as "here is," and  KoaH is thus, so, or "here" in Genesis31:37.


Branches

Cognates of HERE listed at Indo-European ko are BEHIND, ET CETERA, HE, HENCE, HER, HIND (see "CAUDILLO"), HINDER, HINTERLAND, and HITHER.

KahN means "here"' or "now;" HaLahH and HaLaLOO mean "that one" and "these" and may have given us the LO in "lo and behold."  HayNaH and HaLoaM mean "here" too.

In Basque the way to say “just so,”  or “in that way” is hala, hola and horrela.

HayNaH (here) resembles Hawaiian ianei (here); Japanese doubles up with koko (here). Spanish and Portuguese prefer aqui (here).
