Roots

There  is no Indo-European “root” for GROIN.  The GROIN is a curved, angular area where the thigh joins the abdomen. A GROINED ceiling in architecture features sharp, curved intersecting arches.     This recalls both CORNERS (see CORNER) and HORNS (see UNICORN).   Latin cornu, a horn or projecting point, is from QeReN a horn, extending ray or corner ( Leviticus 27:2).  Our GRN words are only a guttural shift from QeReN, where sound AND sense intersect. Meanwhile, Webster’s suggests that GROIN may be from Icelandic grein, tree branch.  The AHD guesses Old English grynde, abyss.

The Koof-Resh/QR hard core of  קרן  QeReN is at UNICORN.


Branches

. In talmudic Aramaic Q'RaNOA(S) are street corners .   GROIN and GROINER sound like other architecural corner words: CORNICE (molding atop a wall or building) and  QUOIN (external corner of a building).

The concept of “corners,” of  side extensions, are natural  extentions of the growths on the sides of animals with horns.  Some animals, like the “ant,” have that head-extension in the front (antennae). For  nasal-dental “front” words displaying similar sense development as our CORNERS-QeReN, see “ANTE.”
