Latin haesitareis to stick fast or hesitate;the alleged Indo-European “root” is ghais (to adhere, hesitate).

He$a$ is to hesitate; He$OO$ is hesitation. Both terms are Aramaic.  Ha$i$aN is a hesitant or indecisiveperson.


Branches

Reverse to  SHaHaH (hesitate) for a synonym.  Hee$aH (to be silent or HUSHED) is related. For antonyms like [HeeYS(H) (haste)  – see  HASTE. Thinking about consequences can make us HESITATE, so [K]HaS(H)aS(H) (apprehension, worry, fear) should be considered. Other  HS terms to note include [K]Hah(S) (dismayed, discouraged) and [K]HaS(H)aH (to be silent, inactive)  – see  HUSH. HESITATION can be positive when it implies [K]Hah$ (forbearance, patience; compassion).
