Roots

Typically ignoring Latin carus (dear) and French cher (dear) in favor of a muddled but Germanic origin, the AHD cites the Indo-European “root” gar (to call, cry), from Germanic  karo, “lament hence grief, care.” The made up Germanic base is from Old English cearu, care, and is better linked to Edenic roots found at  CALL, CRY and GROAN. Crying is from caring, not the other way around.  There is an Indo-European “root” cura (care), a source for CURE, not CARE. It is designated “a Latin noun of unknown origin.”   יקר YeeQaiR is to honor;   יקר YaQaR is dear, precious – I Samuel 3:1. 

See CHERISH.


Branches

When it comes to “love,” Swedish (karlek) and Finnish (reversing to rakkaus) are thinking YaQaR or Edenic “dear.” Somehow, the Indo-European “root” for “cure” means “to care.”  Cognates of CARE may, therefore, be found at CURE. 

יקר YaQaR also means expensive.  Expensive in Basque is gar estia.
