The word NAUSEA is addressed in the entry: NAVY

English Word


Edenic Word


Hebrew Word









Contemplating a NAVAL fleet (of ships) can recall the NAVEL depression in mid-abdomen. A boat or ship, navis in Latin, is also hollowed out.  A boat in water sits in a depression, an area lower than sea level… like the NAVE of a church (see below). N-V may not be about  boats.

Nonetheless, the Indo-European “root” of NAVAL and NAVIGATE is nau -2 (boat). This is based soley on Latin navis, boat.  The Greek “boat” and “sailor” words do  not have N-V.  The many N-V words below reinforce the theory that the N-V of NAVY is about the water, and not the boat above it.

נבוב Na[V](OO[V]) is hollow (Jeremiah52:21), while נבך Nai[V]eKH means "depth (of the sea)" - Job38:16.    נבע NaBH[A]h is “to bubble forth, pour forth, flow”  (Harkavy – Proverbs 18:4).     


The Noon-Bhet Edenic etymons  explain words like NAVIGABLE  as first  about the water, and only later about boating conditions.

Two separate Indo-European “root”s are given to NAVEL and NAVAL. Indo-European “root” nobh, the root for NAVEL, is defined as a "central knob" - just the opposite of the "point of depression" we also find on the NAVEL ORANGE. (Perhaps the lexicographer has an "outsy" rather than an "insy" belly button.)

The Indo-European “root” for NAVY,  nau (boat) – reminds us that U and V were often the same.

When chiseling in stone, Us were always made into Vs.

Edenics often takes issue with alleged “cognates” listed by the American HeritageDictionary.   At least it is amusing and appropriate for land lubbers that NAUSEA is a listed cognate of NAVIGATE. Other alleged cognates listed are NACELLE, NAUTICAL, NAUTILUS, NAVICULAR and NOISE.

The NAVE of a church is the main space (or hollow) between the aisles. The Old French source of NAVE is shanghaiedto serveaboard the Latin navis (ship).

As for Nasal-Dental NAUTICAL words,  there is    נוט   NOADT (to navigate, steer) and   נוד Noon-Vav-Dalet (to “wander” -- Genesis 4:12) . This  is used for the long flying of birds of  Proverbs 26:2.

Leading Edenicist Fernando Aedo  pooled together many N-V words  (nasal-bilabial or nose and lip-made words) that indicate that this root is about water,  not boats
