Roots

A HALO is a ring of light often depicting splendor or glory. Ungloriously, dictionaries yoke HALO with Greek halein (to grind) because of the circular path made on a threshing floor.

חלה [K]HeeLaH is a halo or sheen, as befitting the moon or a prophet's head. הלל HaLahL is to shine, as in Job29:3 - "When His lamp shone over my head." Speaking of glory, הלל  HaLeL is to glorify and   the Hebraicism HALLELUJAH means “praise the Lord”  – see  HAIL.  Shift liquids from L ot R for אור OWR, light; see the light at AURA and ORIOLE.


Branches

H and G are widely interchangeable in Indo-European languages; [GAB may come from

HahBHeeY (vain talk) and GIVE from HahBH (give - Genesis30:1)]. If HALO links up with the Indo-European “root” ghel (to shine) as well as HaLahL (to shine), then the following ghel derivatives are basking in the same glow: ACHOLIA, CHOLE-, CHOLERA, CHLOASMA, CHLORO-, FELON, GLAD, GLEAM, GLEE, GLISTEN, GLOAMING, GLOW, GOLD, GUILDER, GULDEN, MELANCHOLY, YELLOW and ZLOTY. HELLEN means light; there’s HELLENIC (Greek) and a dozen forms of the name Hellen.  Hawaiian glitter is hulalali; shining is hulali.

See COAL.
