Roots

BUTCHER is from Old French bouchier. In modern French boucher (butcher)  echoes a fricative

like S, not a guttural like G. Nonetheless, the so-called  Indo-European “root” is guessed to be  bhugo, absurdly  meaning a male  animal.    Edenic hasa B+fricative+R etymon.   

בשר BaSaR means meat or "flesh” (Genesis2:21).  For an alternative with better music and meaning than the AHD’s source of BUCK, there’s     בתר Ba(S)aR or BaTaR. It means to cut or divide (as the pieces of animal flesh in Genesis15:10).


Branches

The French meatseller is more likely a meat word, than an animal one.  Similarly, the Spanish butcher, carnicero, is from carnal, meat terms, not animal ones.  The Scandivian butchers are akin to “slaughterer.” English FLESH is from the German. German Fleisch (meat) has undergone a bilabial shift from Bet/ B to F, a liquid shift from Resh/ R to L plus an M132 metathesis of BaSaR (flesh).   The Hebrew butcher is a QaTSaBH (a chopper), much like the Turkish butcher, kasap 

  TaBHaK[H] means to slaughter (T-BH-K[H] metathesizes to B-T-CH).    SHAhR means meat, flesh
