Roots

COATI (a racoon-like animal with a long snout) is from Tupi (Brazilian Indian) cua (cincture) + tim (nose).  חטם K[H]oaDTeM (here with the opening guttural dropped) means nose, snout (Isaiah48:9). The ח-ט KH-T element is seen in extentions like חטר K[H]oDTeR (branch; the TM element in the Hebrew nose word has a sensory element, appearring in   טעם DTa’[A]M (flavor).


Branches

Indonesian hidung means nose; Modern Greek miti means nose (TM reversed); Maya kitam means boar.   See HUNT and DACHSHUND for the varieties of HOUND that follow its nose. For another nasalized version of the Edenic nose, a whiff of something gives one a HINT  (M132 of  K[H]oaDTeM, snout, with a nasal shift).
