Roots

There is no Indo-European “root” for HIRE.  Anglo-Saxon hyr means wages.  Some dictionaries link it to Latin carus, dear – see CHERISH.

The closest Hey-Resh term in Edenic is MoaHahR (bride price – Genesis 34:12). KaRaH is to hire (Deuteronomy 2:6), and is only a guttural shift away: K to H.  SaKHaR (to hire –Genesis 30:16)  is a closer etymon, if we focus on the Khaf-Resh. Closest of all is [K]HaKHaR, to hire or let (EDK) or to let (Ben-Yehudah). The Aramaic is identical, while Arabic hakara is “he rented.”  [K]HaKHeeYR is a tenant. The world rental words below guaranteed the lease on this etymon.


Branches

Words for “rent” include:  Arabic igar,

Dutch huur, Finnish vuokra, Rumanian chirie, Swedish hyra, and Turkish kira.
