Roots

LAND is traced to the Indo-European “root” lendh- 2  (open land ).

Like LAMP above, the Edenic etymon has been nasalized.  In this case, a liquid and a dental shift help to obscure the Mideastern motherland. ארץ    AReTS  is land, the dryness (single continent surrounded by water of Genesis 1:1, 1:2 and 1:10).  The AHD’s cognate LAWN has no added N, nor do the liquid-dental “land” words below,


Branches

Land is lad in Polish, so  the N of LAND is likely a nasalized version of LD. LD is available in the Liquid-Dental of (A)-R-T(S). Chinese luti (land) similarly makes the common R to L change, but digs into the T of the original Edenic. Polish lan  also means mainland, reinforcing  the ארץ     AReTS   concept of the dry surface upon which one may  רוץ   R OOTS    ( run ) .
