Roots

Greek charakter is a stamp derived from Greek kharassein, (to sharpen, notch, carve or cut).

The Ten Commandments are חרות      K[H]aROOS or K[H]aROOT ("graven") into the stone tablets in Exodus32:16.     חרט K[H]eReDT is a writing style (Isaiah8:1).   חרט K[H]aRaDT is to engrave or chisel; the    חרטומים K[H]aRDTOOMeeYM or "magicians" of Exodus7:11 are masters of hieroglyphics or engraved CHARACTERS.   חריצה  K[H]aReeYTSaH is sharpening; חרוץ     K[H]aROOTS is a thresher (Isaiah41:15).  K[H]aReeYTZ is an incision;   חרף  K[H]aRaPH is sharp, and חרש    K[H]aRaSH is to plow, engrave, or carve, see HEARSE.  The two-letter cutting root is KH-R.    צ Tsadi is a dental too – so see CARD for more guttural-liquid-dental cutters.

The Indo-European “root” for CHARACTER is gher (to scrape, scratch). This matches up with    גרד GaRaD (to "scrape" - as Job must do to his skin in Job2:8).     קרד QaRaD is to scrape or curry.


Branches

One doesn't have to dig very deeply to see CARD, CURRY, (DE)GRADE, DEGREE (see “DEGREE), GRADE (to make level - GaRaR is "smooth" in Ikings: 9), GRATE, (S)CRAPE, (S)CRATCH and (S)HARP in the Hebrew words above.

One does have to switch the KR to RK in order to see the source of RAKE (scraping and leveling tool) and RACC(OON) (literally "the hand scratcher" in Algonquian Indian).

GASH is an official cognate of CHARACTER in the AHD.

See CARD, HEARSE, HERESY, SCRAPER and SCRATCH.
