Roots

COULD is the past of "can." Its etymology is very suspect, and no Indo-European “root” is ventured. The OxfordEnglishDictionary speculates that the spelling was altered, influenced by "should" and "would."

All agree that the "D" is unhistoric; the "D" might be an "ed" past tense suffix added to the original CL or KL term.

 (Ya)KHoaL means "could." (Genesis 45:2)


Branches

(Ya)KHOAL means "able to," "can" or "capable." It is used to speculate on what "could be."

(YiI)KHoaL(eT) means "power" or "ability" - recalling the Indo-European “root” gal (to be able, to have power). GALLIARD is a given cognate of Gallo-Roman galia (strength, power).   Gallu means "ability" in Cymric (Wales).


Bible Verses
