Anglo-Saxon grund means sea bottom, and GROUND is originally to have meant the bottom of anything

GoaReN is a threshing floor; the King James Bible renders it just "floor" in Joel2:24. See GRANARY.

There is no known root for GROUND, but speculation points to the Indo-European base ghren (to rub against).

GaRahR is to scrape or plane; GiReeYDaH is scratching.
