Roots

INCARCERATE is to imprison or confine. The  Indo-European “root” carcer means barrier, enclosure, prison,  from a  "Latin noun, probably borrowed from an unidentified source."

To identify the source (of  this doubled  K-R word of walling in),   קיר QeeYR means a wall (Leviticus14:37) or (walled) city (Isaiah15:1).   קרה       QaRaH  means to board up or seal.

Ancient cities were defended by walls, and became associated with them.  See COURT.

The Jewish-Aramaic     קרתא QaRTAh and    קרת   QereT (town, city) are identical with the Ugarittic and Phoenician  words, thus  cities with names like CARTHAGE.


Branches

Other ancient walled cities include CAIRO and KHARTOUM.   The official cognates of INCARCERATE are  CANCEL, CHANCEL, and CHANCELLOR.

Italian  citta (CITY)is more likely from  קרתא QaRTAh (town, city) with a dropped R, than from Indo- European “root” kei- 1 (to lie; bed, couch).

Welsh caer  means a walled city.  A different word meaning “wall” and “protection,”

  חומה   K[H]OAMaH, was reversed in the Japanese machi, town.
