Greek polis is a city;the alleged IE “root” is pel (citadel, fortified high place).

  עפל   OaPHeL is defined as a "fortified mound, hill;" it is translated "citadel" in Isaiah32:14.

Also,   בירה  BeeYRah is a capital ciy, fort or citadel (I Chronicles 29:1 – see BARRIO).

  BR  can shift bilabial and liquid letters to  at least reveal affinity to a PL “city” word.   For the Slavic city, see GRID.


The cognates of POLIS are ACROPOLIS, COSMOPOLITAN, MEGALOPOLIS, METROPOLIS, NECROPOLIS, POLICE, POLICLINIC, POLICY, POLITICS, POLITY and SINGAPORE (Sanskrit pur is a city).  Latin villa (country house-source of VILLA, VILLAGE and VILLAIN) is currently linked to Indo-European “root” weik (clan).        עפל    [O]aPHeL or GHoaPHeL and its cousin KoaFeR or K'FaR (village -- Samuel6:18) offer better etymons.

   כפרי K'FoaReeY is a farmer; so is a CROFTER - switch the positions of the R and F.
