Roots

JOINT and JOINTLY (together) is from Old French   joi(n)d(re) (to join). 

   יחד Ya[K]HaD or Ja[K]HaD means to together. The verb יחד     Ya[K]HaiD or Ja[K]HaiD is to join (Genesis 22:8)  – see  JUXTAPOSE.  Yod is often a J.  A standard dental shift turns    ד Daled/D into a T.  The N of JOINT is added by nasalization.


Branches

יחד  Ja[K]HaD and Spanish junto, from Latin juncta, share the meaning of “together.”  This gave English the term JUNTA, a ruling councel, often of generals who together overthrew the previous leadership. The nasalization, added N, in JUNTA reinforces that in JOINT.
