Roots

To the AHD, the theoretical Indo-European “root” of BISON is weis (to flow). BISON (wild oxen) have a Latin name traced to a root "of obscure origin" for strong-smelling animals.

באש   BA’ahSH is to stink;   באשן  BA’ahSHoN means "the stinker," and is today used for the skunk.

For a fricative-bilabial Edenic sourse meaning “to flow,” see SEEP.


Branches

The WEASEL is an official cognate of BISON. When dead and decayed, the frogs of plague #2 made quite a "stink" :  BA’aSH in Exodus7:18. YahBHaiSH (dry) is related in that drying and rotting will lead to a fetid, putrid state. "Putrid" is a cognate of PUS, both from the Indo-European “root” pu (to rot, decay). A sweet-smelling B-S antonym is  BoaSeM (perfume, spice—see BALSAM.  Cited by the AHD in their hunt for bison,  Germanic wison is the earlier form of Old English wase (mire, mud) and the source of OOZE (see OOZE.) The definition of BaTSaTS,an available source of VS,   is to OOZE, trickle or drip. (For a backward, Zayin-Bet  synonym see SEEP). OOZE and mud are related in Hebrew, as BoaTS is mud, mire (Jeremiah38:22 – see  PITCH) and BeeTSaH is a swamp or marsh (Job40:21). Swamps have the smell to fit the FETID and PUTRID things in this entry, and mud is a favorite medium for BISON or water buffalo. The cognates of BISON, OOZE and WEASEL at Indo-European “root” weis are VIRUS, VISCID, VISCOUS and WISENT.
