Roots

Greek eidos means idea (as well as appearance and form). Greek oida means “I know,” and is related to the name Oedipus, a character who comes to know about his past.

AyD[A]h means “I will know” in Genesis 24:14. YiDeeY[A]H   is knowledge or information;  HOAD[A]h means brought to one's knowledge - Leviticus4:23;  YaD[A]h is to know or be aware of something - Genesis31:32.

The two letter root is Dalet-Ayin, D[A]h (which is "know!" in the imperative).


Branches

D’a’[A]T, thinking, resembles German er dachte (he thinks).  Perhaps da ("yes" in Russianand Rumanian) isaffirmation, just as  D[A]h  or YaD[A]h  is about acknowledgement of knowing the same information.

See IOTA for another Greek I or i from a Hebrew Yod/ Y; the Greeks heard Ya’[A]QoaBH  (Jacob) as Iakobos.

See ORTHODOX and "VEDA."
