Roots

There is no Indo-European “root” known for the GALE (blast of wind, outburst of laughter, etc.)

Webster’s cites Old Norse gol, a blast of wind.

  גל GahL is a wave or billow (Isaiah 48:18), A  wave can be of water, wind or sound.

The common ocean birds who are often seen  riding the waves are called GULLS.


Branches

Samoan wave is galu.

גל GahL also means a heap or hill (Genesis 31:46). In the next verse, Lavan calls the גל GahL a  YiGahR.  This is why the  גליל GALILEE is named for its waves of hills, while HILL or mounrtain is gora in Slavic.   See HILL at OROLOGY.

For the  דגל   DeGeL (flag) flying in the גל GALE of wind – see FLAGSTONE.
