Roots

CADENCE is thought to come from a fabricated IE “root” kad (to fall) and Latin  cadere (to fall). 

An Edenic word with the same KD sequence and sense is   קדה QaDaH and    is   קדד   QaDahD to bow down   (Genesis 23:7).    In Akkadian qadadu is to incline.   Greek kata means down; Hittite katta does too; all three, and the Latin  cadere (to fall) can also be reversals of    תחת   TaK[H]aT (down, below, under – Genesis 1:7 – see DACHSHUND and  SOUTH.


Branches

Cognates of CADENCE under Indo-European kad (to fall) include ACCIDENT, CADAVER, CADENT, CASCADE, CASE, CHANCE (see CHANCE), CHUTE (a fall in French), DECADENCE, DECIDUOUS, ESCHEAT, INCIDENT, OCCASION and RECIDIVISM.

 Dentals D and T are interchangeable, yet the AHD does not link their root kad (to fall) root with their root kat- 1 (something thrown down). More significant that laboratory reconstructions, Greek kata (down) should link up with the Edenic terms above, as well as with TaK[H]AT (under, below -TK → KT). This would yield scores of  CATA- words, including CATABOLIC, CATACLYSM, CATACOMB, CATALOGUE, CATALYST, CATAPULT, CATARACT, CATATROPHE, CATHODE and CATHOLIC. At CATHOLIC the dictionary reveals a second meaning for Greek kata- completely. This recalls AKHAT (one, as in all one and the same).   The ACCENT is one’s CADENCE or fall of audible stress.  ACCENT, therefore may be a nasalized (extra N) CT or KT “fall” word, related to CADENCE.  The AHD places ACCENT under kan (to sing), a cognate with words like “chant.”
