Roots

The dictionary has a question mark for the origin of Middle English hors and Germanic base hairsa.Thedictionary understands the basic sense of HOARSE (husky voiced) as "dried out, hence rough." Therefore, Indo-European base qai (heat) is the offered etymon.

To cover this unlikely etymology,  [K]HaReeYSH(eeYT) is the dry, hot (wind) ofJonah4-8. For  Het-Resh heat see CHAR.

The more likely etymology involves quiet speech.  Sounding HOARSE are  (HiT)[K]HaRaiS(H) (to whisper - Judges16:2) and  [K]HaReeS(H)aH (dumbness, silence),  [K]HORaS(H) is to be silent (Psalms83:2) or secretive.

If one prefers to link throat problems to the horse-like whinnying of clearing the throat – see HORSE.


Branches

[K] HaiRaiSH is a deaf person (to whom everything is inaudible as a whisper);  (He)[K]H'ReeYSH is to plot (with a hoarse whisper so that others are deaf to the scheme). The other Edenic “whisper” word, typically, is made up of similar sounds/letters. La[K]HaSH (whisper – Isaiah 3:3) is a liquid plus Het-Shin
