Roots

Old English forst (frost) is traced to IE preus (to freeze, burn).

Hebrew offers  K’FOAR  ("hoar-frost"- Psalms147:16) and  BHa[E]R (burn  – see  BURN and FIRE). Tsadi/TS is a dental, no it is not a stretch to consider a relationship between the ST of FROST and the Dalet/D of   ברד BaRaD (frozen rain – Exodus 9:18). Tsadi and D are intertwined since the emergence of Aramaic. (See The Origin of Speeches).,


Branches

A plague of Egypt, BHaRaD is a cold word usually translated as “hail.”  Barid  is cold in Arabic. For connections between words for frozen precipitation and cold, see  FR words like FRIGID at SANGFROID. A REFRIGERATOR  has lost the historic D kept in FRIGIDITY. FREEZE and FROZEN are official cognates of FROST. German frieren is to freeze or be cold. German frost means frost or chill.  Frostig means frigid or cold – like Arabic barid, cold.
