Roots

CROSS is linked to CURVE, to the Indo-European base (s)qreu-q and to Indo-European “root”s like ger (curing, crooked) which ignore the S's. See CURVE [from qee[E]R (to curve)] but an ety­mon with an S added on to a similar Koof-Resh/QR root would be most appropriate. The Old Norse cross (kross), as well as the Old Irish (cros) and Old French one (cruis), end in an S. Even the Latin crux or crucis (cross) encourages one to unearth the original CROSS with its S intact.

To quote the definition, a CROSS is an upright "beam," with another beam "fastened" horizontally, upon which the noble Romans would CRUCIFY convicted innocents. The fasteningof boards and the impaling of hands and feet, as well as the CROSS-WISE shape of a CROTCH or CROSS, all recall the term QeRe$ (hook, clasp - Exodus26:11). QoRah$ is to bow or bend (Isaiah 46:2). QaR$oaL is a joint or ankle, and GHiR$aL is to cross (one's legs). If a beam is crucial to a CRUCIFIX or any CRISS-CROSS shape, there is  KeReSH (board, plank— Exodus26:23) to consider.
