Roots

ROOTS: There is no IE “root” for BLOTCH, a discolored spot or irregular blemish. Webster’s treats it as an extention of BLOT, a spot, from Icelandic bletter, a blot, spot or stain.

ברד    BaRoaD means spotted, "mottled" (Genesis 31:10). The BLOTCHY color of Jacob’s sheep have undergone a liquid shift (Resh/R to L) and a dental shift (Dalet/D to T).


Branches

BRANCHES:  It is easier to hear BRIT (young of herring and other fish), but the word is not well known. BRIT is from Old Celtic brith (varicolored) and akin to Cornish bruit (speckled).  The link to animal coloring makes the Edenic source clear, and there are more spotted animals at LEOPARD.  The  PA(N)THER may be a nasaized PARD  (from Latin pardus, leopard or panther). Switch the R and T of PANTHER to see PARD. ברדלס BaRDiLa$ is a later Hebrew word for panther; "borrowed" from the Greek.

For the verb BLOT, see WEAR OUT.
