Roots

The Old French, with cocombre, had made the CUCUMBER more cumbersome than it was in the Latin cucum(is).

כיכיון   QeeyQaYOAN, another double-guttural-nasal, is the "gourd" or castor-oil plant in Jonah4:6. Israelis order CUCUMBER with other words, but CUCUMBER   is from a KKN Biblical term for vine-grown, gourd-like plants.


Branches

The Koof-Yod-Koof core may be the first element in Latin cucurbita (gourd); GOURD may come from Arabic chiar (cucumber). The Swahili cup is a  kikombe , so  it should be a hollowed-out gourd or    כיכיון QeeYQ aYOAN.   There is a nasal shift, and the addition of a be- suffix.  A metathesised  QiSHOOS (pumpkin) and QiSHOOE (cucumber - Numbers11:8) may have influenced (S)QUASH.
