Roots

The ear LOBE is the fleshy part of the ear that hangs down. The LIP or LABIAM is the fleshy rim of the mouth. The AHD assigns the Indo-European “root” leb - 1 (things “hanging loosely”) to LOBE,  and the “root” leb- 2 (lip) to LIP.  Both the LIP, from Latin labium, and the LOBE, from Greek lobos,  are deposits of fat.

Edenic fat (the noun) is חלב [K]HeyLeBH (fat; not merely like a swollen, droopy belly, but as subtle as “the fat of the kidneys of wheat – Deuteronomy 32:14” (Harkavy).


Branches

Relevant listed cognates of LIP include : LABIAL, LABELLUM, LABRET and LABRUM. LOBE words include  LOB (a droopy throw),  (the thick, heavy) LOBLOLLY,  LOBOTOMY  and perhaps the LOBSTER.  These LB words require the hushed Het before  Lamed-Bhet.  The guttural Het with Lamed-Bhet, K[H]eLe(V) c ould provide us with sticky fat words, like CLEAVE, GLUE and words connected to GLUTEN. Few people have too much fat in the ear lobe or lip.  But people tend to store fat in what the Greeks called the gloutos, rump, whence the GLUTEUS.
