Roots

The Indo-European “root” of FAIR ispek- 1 (to make pretty).  Old English faeger means beautiful, from fagnian, to enjoy.

פאר  Pah’AiR and PayAiR mean to adorn or make beautiful – Exodus 8:5, Isaiah 60:13.  פאר   P’Air is an an ornamental headdress – Exodus 39:28.  תפארה TiPHAhRaH is beauty or ornament –Deuteronomy 26:19.  As for the FAIR, opposite of swarthy ,  פרור P’aROOR is paleness of face – Lexicon, Nehemiah 2:11.  Shifting bilabials from F to B, בהיר   BaHeeYR means bright, and in Leviticus 13:4 it is whitish. The bilabial-liquid built-in antonyms of such words seen at PURE are  the dark   פ-ל Pey-Lamed words like אפל    OaPHeL (darkness – Job 28:3)  seen at PALL.


Branches

The AHD lists FAIN and FAWN as cognates.  Japanese rippa na (splendid) reverses to a PR word.  French faire (to make or do) is from   פעל   P’[A]hL and PH’{A]hL (to do, work, make – Numbers 23:23).  Shift of the liquid (Lamed/L to R) is required,  and most often the Edenic appears as a פ   Pey/P, not פ Phey/PH.  See AFFAIR at FACULTY.
