Roots

Old French moquer is to mock (jeer). MOOQ is to mock, insult or "scoff" in Psalms73:8.


Branches

No Indo-European “root” or cognates in English are available.  MOOQYOAN (jester, clown) is traced to Greek mokos (mocker - "of uncertain origin") by those who mock the antiquity of Hebrew. Mahigan (Amerind) schmeck (to laugh) may be a nasalized TSaK]H]aQ (laugh) rather than an M-K mocking word with a prefix – ( see CHUCKLE).

MOCKING brings another down; see an M-K word of being down at MEEK.


Bible Verses
