Roots

Old English tind is the farthest back anyone could trace TINE. A TINE is a sharp, projecting point, a spike or a prong. SNAG's Old Norse and Norwegian roots are defined in much the same way, so a TN or SN etymon of sharpness is needed.

צן TSaiN is a barb, thorn, briar or biting snare (Proverbs 22:5);    צנה TSeeNaH is a fishing hook (Ams 4:2);    צנין TSaNeeYN is a thorn or prick (Numbers33:55). In this last Biblical verse the Canaanites are called "thorns in your sides" - the "obstacle, difficulty" sense mentioned at SNAG.    צמן TSaNahN is to be sharp or pointed – see skinniness at THIN.    נורה צ TSeeNOARaH is a hook or needle.  Samekh-Noon also means sharpness:   סנה    $NeH is a thornbush (Exodus3:2) and   סנה סנה $eNeH is a pointed rock (I Samuel 14:4). A TINE of a comb is a tooth.  שן SHeN is a tooth (Exodus21:24). To reverse to NT for another thorn, there’s     נעץ Na’[A]hTS or NaGHaTS, to, to stick in, wedge , like the Noon-Ayin-Tsadi thorns of Isaiah 55:13 – see NAIL. 


Branches

Because the Shin/ S in SHeN can become a T (see TAURUS), TINE, TENON, TENACITY (as in TINE), TENACULUM (hooked instrument) and TANG (prong) are all related. TANG and TONGS are cognates at the artificially reconstructed Indo-European “root” denk (to bite). Indo-European “root” dent (tooth) is the source of DENTAL, INDENT, -ODON, TOOTH and TUSK. The Tsadi/ TS and TSaiN easily fits is with the fricative Shin and SHaIN (tooth).  Either the Romance and Germanic languages are using צן TSaiN (thorn) for tooth (as many peoples use Edenic words for hook or grind), or the DENTAL words are from a Shin-to-dental shift via Aramaic.  In Spanish tenedor is a fork (like the teeth or TINES of a fork), and  tener  is to hold (what forks, teethe and thorns do).  Mosquitoes and other stinging insects do not have teeth. But they do bite. As so, as seen from Aedo’s data below, biting bugs were named for the Edenic SNand TN sound and sense. This explains why the Hungarian mosquito is a szunyog . Mpre biting insects, etc. below.

A sharp SNAG is also a broken or irregular tooth, otherwise known as a SNAGGLETOOTH. The toothy PIRANHA fish has a Tupi Indian (Brazil) name, half of it based on the term sainha (tooth).

Since SNAG is a known tooth word, toothy or sharp ivory derivatives of Shin-Noon will have to fit here in this entry:   German Zahn is a tooth. Remove a guttural ending, and German zinke (spike, prong) helps fit ZINC (with a salty "bite") into the picture. TSiNoaRaH (hook, needle) helps us latch onto "ten" terms like TENTACLE. SHiNeeYNaH is a "sharp word" or "taunt." TAUNT, using words that STIN(G), is another TN term that ultimately belongs here.

Easily related to TSaiN and SHeN is the Italian tusk or fang: zanna. Ivory is sanga in Korean. The same sound and sense appears in Japanese tsuno (horn or antler).  ANTLER  (the horns of deer, etc.) have no older source than Old French antoillier.   The NT root is reversed, fitting the many global ANTLER and other horn words below which are echos of Tsadi-Noon and Shin-Noon.sharp words.  A Chinese needle is a  zhen X832 .  

Tama is a tooth for the Comanche and Hopi Indians, providing yet another distant TN relative for words with the D-N of  DENTIST or DENTURE.  The DENTAL shift from TN to DN is slight.
Reversing Tsadi-Noon, TS-N, lets us feel  NOATS (to prick, puncture, stick in), Na’[A]TS or NaGHaTS is an alternative etymon for GNAT – see   GNAW, while  N[A]h’ahTSOOTS (thornbush -- Isaiah7:29) seems a likely source of NETTLE and NEEDLE and NASTY (dangerous - origin unknown). The alleged Indo-European “root” of NEEDLE is given the improbable meaning of  “to spin, sew.”  But the sound of this continent-wide reconstruction is nee or sne, like Shin-Noon (tooth) or Tsadi-Noon (barb)..  The Germanic and Old English source of NETTLE (“a plant with toothed leaves” --- AHD) may also be seen as a reverse of our Tsadi-Noon.   Nahuatl and Egyptian biting and gnawing words begin with TN; in Uto-Aztecan languages the tooth word is a TM or TN. Korean reverses this for the (hardware) nail: mot.  Somalia is close to Israel, but  the Swahilir tooth word became jino.

More biting teeth at GNAW.

German nashen, to nibble (nib is a sharp tooth word), as with a sweet tooth, is the source of the Yiddish nash.  Reverse to SH-N for another chomping SHeN.

Below are charted some Post-Babel spin-offs of only

1) Edenic Shin-Noon,  fricative-nasal,  SHeN (tooth) –

Involing fricatives (CH, S, TS, Z),  nasals (M,N): or reverse,

and 2) Tsadi-Noon, fricative/dental-noon, TSeN (thorn).

Rememberi that the versatile Tsadi renders TS, ST, S. T, CH or D.  No matter how open the root letters are to shifting in sound, the sense has to remain relevant to biting teeth and prickly thorns.
