Roots

COAL is related to German kohl (charcoal) and Irish gual (charcoal), and is attributed to the Indo-European “root” g(e)ulo (a glowing coal).

  גחלי  אש  “Ga[K]HaLaY (AySH)” are the "glowing coals" ofLeviticus16:12.   The singular   גחלת   Ga[K]HeLeT ן s a glowing coal;   גחל Ge[K]HaL is a burning coal. All the G's in the etymology of COAL reinforce the contention that the     ג   Gimel/ G often becomes a K (or hard C) in its IE permutations.   The Slavic cognates below would indicate that it was not the   ח Het that hardened.

The opposite of the guttural-guttural-liquid  COAL is the guttural-liquid-guttural   קרח   QeRaK[H] ice – see GLACIER at CRYOGENICS.
