Roots

While it now infers shed and clotted blood, GORE or gor meant dung and filth in Anglo-Saxon and Middle English.

חרא K[H]aRAh is excrement or "dung" in IIKings6:25.    חר-יונים K[H]eR-YOANeeYM are bird droppings.


Branches

גלל GaLaL is dung (Gimel/G and Het/K[H] are interchangeable guttural; L and R letters are interchangeable liquids). There's a GORHEN and three GORY adjectives of GORINESS.   Japanese yogore(dirt, filth) reinforces the connection of GORE to K[H]aRaH.

The bloody connotation of GORE may be from GHaRaH (to pour out – Isaiah 53:12, later to transfuse blood). The guttural-Resh of Ayin-Resh-Hey reverses the Resh-Koof emptying seen in KARATE.

Ora'h is blood in a Malay dialect.
