Roots

A BROOK is a small river or stream whose Anglo-Saxon root is presumed to be related to BREAK – see  BREAK.

A    ברכה   B’RayKHaH (often translated as "pool") is a man-made irrigation canal that must be dug or BROKEN in to divert or split off natural water supplies.

Ecclesiastes (Kohelet) 2:6 reads: "I constructed poolsof water, enough to irrigate a forest –   ברכה B’RayKHaH.


Branches

Another B P-R L-KG in the BREAK family that is relevant here is PeLeG (stream, river). See ARCHIPELAGO

Erreka is a river in Basque; the Polish and Russian is reka; reverse the R/L-K to kali in Indonesian or the Japanese river term (kawa). If a K/G-RL root seems to emerge from these and the Hebrew terms above, one should look further to works like NaK[H]aL (stream),  HeeGeeYR (to spill, pour out), HaLeKH (flowing), QaLa[K]H (to stream, pour out), QahL (swift), [O]aRaiQ (vein), HaReeYQ (to empty, pour out) and QaR (to spring forth).            See CAR and CATSKILL.
