Roots

HEARTH (fireplace), Old English heorth (hearth) and a Germanic form ker-ta are traced by the AHD to a so-called IE “root” called ker- 4 (heat, fire).  No matter how historically incorrect these reconstructed “roots” are, they are valuable in gathering cognates, and in pointing to the historic, Edenic root.   The Edenic  KR oven word is כור KOOR (furnace – Deuteronomy 4:20). כיר KeeYR is a hearth or cooking furnace (Leviticus 11:35).  K[H]aRaH is to burn – see ALKALI, CALORIE, CERAMIC, CHAR and KILN but Harkavy links KOOR to KaRaH (to dig out – Genesis 26:25).  He cites that KeeYOAR is a wash-basin in Exodus 31:9 and a fire-pan in Zecharia 12:6. The oldest ovens or furnaces were hollowed-out rocks.

 K-R burning words, like  the similar כיר QeeYR (hearth, cooking-furnace – Exodus 12:11)  and  כור    KOOR (furnace, crucible -- Deuteronomy4:20) are at hot entries like CHAR HEARTH and SCORCH  Guttural-liquid  synonyms like  קלי QaLeeY (toast, roast) and antonyms like קר QahR (cool) are at CRYOGENICS.


Branches

The AHD’s cognates of HEARTH include CARBON, CARBUNCLE, CERAMIC and CREMATE.

English H  from a harder Edenic guttural (KOOF or Kahf) are seen at HEAD.
