Roots

There is no Indo-European “root” for DUNG. The oldest etymons that Webster’s has are Old High German and Danish DNG words for manure or a mound.

 If following “mound,” see DUNE,  a reversal of    נד NaiD (heap – Exodus 15:8). It is simpler to see DUNG deriving from the D-double nasal  דמן DoaMeN (dung or “dung-heap” – II Kings 9:37).  

מדמנה   MahDMaiNaH is rendered dung-hill in Isaiah 25:10. The soiled D-M theme goes back to

  אדמה ADaMaH (ground). Humankind is formed "of the dust of the ground “ in Genesis2:7.

D-M moisture is seen at MEAD.


Branches

In Araona (Bolivian jungle) the word for DUNG is domi.
