Roots

GRID is given the ficticious Indo-European “root” kert (to turn, entwine), as if GRID were a cognate of CRATE.  A גדר GeDeR, fence (Numbers 22:24)  is a grid or GRATE, GRATING which GUARDS.   GRATED means protected by a grate, by latticework bars.

 See GATHER and GARDEN.


Branches

GUARDING Slavic towns like Leningrad were stockades.  In forest lands, their natural defense was not the hilltop redoubt, but the wooden palisade of perpendicular barriers, the   גדר GeDeR, fence .  Again Edenic GDR mophs to GRD.  This is why Russian gorat is a town.

 In Spanish there is guarda , guard; guarder, to put away or GUARD; guardia, watch, police and both guardilla (attic) and guarida (den)  that also hint at a root meaning: a fenced off, guarded area.

A French guardeur or guardian would also keep animals or criminals behind a protective stockade.  Unlike the English, Spanish or French, no M132 metathesis is needed to link German Gitter (grid) with גדר GeDeR.

A GRID can be used as a sieve.  Guttural-R-dental words like CRITIC are linked to the IE “root” krei (sieve, discriminate) found at EXCREMENT.
