Roots

A KIT originally meant a bucket or small tub, as seen in the Middle Dutch term kitte (a container, akin to the KID).  KahD is a pitcher in Genesis24:19.

The ALBATROSS is the Portuguese version of Arabic al (the) qadus (bucket). Greek kados (cask, jar) is "probably of Semitic origin" according to Webster's.


Branches

The CADDY (container), KETTLE and (S)CUTTLE all fit in the same tub  – see  CADDY.  KIDS are wooden tubs for army rations.  Greek kutos (a vessel) is the source of -CYTE and CYTO- words.  In Thai a bottle is koo-ut, while a water pail is tahng namn. The N-M reverses MaYiM (water –see MIAMI), and T-G reverses (a nasalized) our K-D. The Estonian bag, kott, is a fine KahD. Early bathtubs were little more than buckets. The Romanian bathtub is a cada; the Serbo-Croatian is kada; and theHungarian is furdokad.
