Roots

There is no make-believe Indo-European “root” for FLICKER or BLINK.  Both can be used to mean the intermittent shining of a light, as in signaling.  Lexicographers and linguists who can’t see that B and F are the same letter, bilabials, and that BLINK is a nasalized (extra N) form of FLICKER, will not catch the twinkle of language discovery that signals through the gloom. As with FLICK, dictionaries offer nothing for FLICKER.  For BLINKWebster’s cites Swedish blinka-- meaning to blink, shine or twinkle.  The bogus N is absent in Anglo-Saxon blican, to shine.     

BaRaQ is a bolt, FLICKER or broken line of lightning (Exodus 19:16).

It is less meteorological in Deuteronomy 32:41, where it means the glitter of a sword.  For a fuller  sense of BRK fragmentation, see BREAK.


Branches
