Roots

GHERKIN is from Dutch agurkje (cucumber).

ירק YeReQ or JeReQ means vegetable (Exodus10:15);   ירוק YaROAQ or JaROAQ means green  – see  YOLK


Branches

TheGerman cucumber is agurke.    

  "Gemini" derives from the Indo-European “root” yem, so G words may have Y roots. Similarly, ten of the first fifteen Y words indexed in the AHD derive from G roots.  Other English G or J words from Edenic Yod/ Y, J include  GET  and JET  (originally to throw) from YahD or JahD (hand - Genesis16:12). The etymology of GET is helped by the valuable research behind the bogus Indo-European “root” ghed (to seize, take)].  For Yod as a J-like soft-G sound, note the Italian take on Yod-names like Ya[A]KoaBH (Jacob), YOA$aiF (Joseph), and YaFeT: Giacobbo, Giuseppe and Geppetto.  Also, see most J entries here, and  JOT at IOTA.
