Roots

KNOCK and KNUCKLE are said to be from Anglo-Saxon cyncled (bent, crooked) and the Indo-European “root” gen (to press together). To address the given root,  עקל GHaQaiL is crooked  (see ANKLE) and חנק  K[H]aNaiQ is to squeeze or strangle (see HANG).     נכה

NaKHaH is a root meaning "to beat" or "strike" (IISamuel11:15).  See נגע NaG[A]h (to touch, reach, strike – Genesis 32:26) below.   נגח   NaGa[K]H is is to thrust, push or gore – Exodus 21;28.                  הכה HeeKaH and   מכה MaKaH are more familiar forms of the infinitive נכה NaKHaH.

 To KNOCK is to strike.


Branches

NiQeeYSHaH) and NiQeeYPHaH both mean KNOCKING.  NaG[A]h or NaGaGH is to strike. HACK, HOCKEY, and (TOMA)HAWK may link up with HeeKaH (to strike). NaGeD and NaGeR are striking and hammering terms preserved in Aramaic and Syriac.

The  Navajo arm , agaan , may be a reversal of  נגע NaG[A]h (to touch, reach, strike) a close relation to our  נכה   NaKHaH .
