Roots

REGRET (sorrow, remorse) is derived "probably from a Germanic base seen in Anglo-Saxon gretan (to weep, lament)".

חרט  [K]HaRahDTaH ן s repentance or regret; only a dental shift away is    חרדה  K[H]aRaDaH -- fear, anxiety or "trouble" in IIKings4:13.


Branches

GUILT, from Anglo-Saxon gylt, is only two Grimm's Law changes away from Het-Reh-Tet. K[H]-R-DT → GLT.  A  Resh → W shift allows Japanese kowai (afraid) to come from  K[H]aRaiD (to fear). The Japanese gives one the courage to suggest that COW, COWER and COWARD are from this same KH-(W)R Hebrew term. Reprimand causes regret. K[H]aRaT(S) is a cutting word that also refers to cutting verbal abuse (from Exodus 11:7), and one letter down on the alpha­bet scale,   חרף    K[H] aRaPH is to reproach (see   REPROACH  and  SHARP).

Irish aithirge, repentance (which begins with REGRET) is an M321 metathesis, a full reversal of our guttutal-lquid-dental. The Het has shifted to G, and the Tet to TH.
