The Indo-European “root” for GRATIS (free) is  g w ere- 3  (to praise).   Needy sycophants link INGRATIATING to lip service and positive reviews rather than freely giving with generous love.

  חרות   [K]HayROOT is freedom; the חרת   [K]HaRaT engraved, stone tablets of the Ten Commandments  that were cut free from the rock were all about GRATITUDE (Exodus 32:16).   חרר  [K]HaRahR is free (Ecclesiastes10:17).  For the  ח-ר Het-Resh subroot of openness, see HOLLOW.
