Roots

The Indo-European “root” sek(w) (to say, utter) is the source of SAGA as well as SAW (a saying), SAY and SCOLD.

SAGA (a narrative) is echoed in   שיח SeeYa[K]H (talk, tell, "recite" in Psalms145:5). שיחה    SeeYK[H]aH is a speech, talk or oration. Isaac is   שוח SOOaK[H]/ “meditating” in the field in Genesis 24:63


Branches

Sa[K]H is to talk or tell;  S(H)aG(aR) means to speak fluently or to flow. Reverse SH-G for the source of GUSH.

The teller of SAGAS was often a SAGE, though the savants trace SAGE to Latin sapere (to know, taste) – see   SAVOIR FAIRE). Perhaps SAGE is from ZaQeN (elder – Exodus 24:14 ), and SAGEBRUSH is a ZaQaN (beard – Leviticus 19:27)  – see  SAGAMORE.

In Altaic, Turkic languages, say is to utter, recite and chant. Nasalizing (adding an N) this Sin-Vav-Het term (like S-G} offers us an alternative route to SONG and SING. It would connect speaking, chanting and singing words, and add some volume to Isaac’s prayerful meditation above.
