Roots

Old English hem(m) is a doubling over or a HEM; the alleged Indo-European “root” is kem (to compress).  

To compress in Hebrew is קמט    QaMaDT (Job16:8); קמט  QeMeDT is a fold, wrinkle or crease.


Branches

QaMahTS is to compress the hand. Indo-European “root” ken (pinching, closing tight) is the source of NAP, NIBBLE, and NIP. Indo-European ken (to compress) is credited with KNACKER, NECK, NEWEL, NOCK, NOOK, NOUGAT, NUCLEUS and NUT. Humu is to sew, stitch or bind in Hawaiian. See [K]HeNeQ (strangulation) at HANG.

See HEAD for other K → H changes. The other HEM, in "hem and haw," recalls GiMGaiM (stammer).
