Roots

CERAMIC is from Greek keramikos,  from keramos or kheramos (potter's clay). The Indo-European “root” is ker (heat, burn, fire).

An M132 metathesis away,   חמר    [K]HoaMeR means clay or raw material (Jeremiah18:6).

  חמרה K[H]AMRaH is the reddish loam, earth, or clay seen in much ancient pottery.   The Indo-European “root” felt the warmth of   חרה K[H]aRaH,  to burn (see CHAR and IRE).

The other clay term from the world’s oldest long document is   חרס K[H]eRe$, pottery  (Jeremiah 19:2).


Branches

Gherai is clay in Mundzhani (a Turkic language).

Het-Mem/HM earthen words provide possible cognates from divisions of the Indo-European “root”  (d)hghem (earth):   CLAMMY is  from Anglo-Saxon clam (clay), from Greek khamai (on the ground). Listed cognates include: CHAMELEON, CHAMOMILE and GERMANDER. From Latin humus (earth) comes: EXUME, HUMBLE, HUMILIATE, HUMUS; from Latin homo (human being) comes: HOMAGE, HOMBRE, HOMICIDE, HOMINID, HOMO- and HUMAN.
