Roots

Old English nett is the source of NET.   Is a fish net or the internet something that binds fish or people together? The AHD thinks so, and presents the Indo-European “root” ned (to tie, bind), a cognate of NODE and NETTLE. If capturing animals is what a NET does, then why does a NET divide players on a tennis court, and not capture or bind them? A logical answer is that NET is something cast or extended outward.  Only some nets can bind or capture.

A tent is pitched,  spread out or cast abroad in Genesis 33:19 where the common Noon-Tet-Hey verb first appears . נטה  NaDTaH is to extend 

or stretch out; natu in Akkadian; nata in Arabic.

NaDT[A]h is to plant, fix or establish.

נטה  NaDTaH’s built-in opposite of nasal-dental stretching out  is dental-nasal shrunkeness and meagerness:  צנום   TSaNOOM     (Genesis 41:23). More narrow dental-nasals at THIN.


Branches

The Indo-European “root” would also bind NET with NODULE, NODUS, DENOUEMENT, ANNEX, CONNECT and NEXUS.

NaDTaH reversed is Chinese tan (spread out). Many of the alleged derivates of IE ten (stretch) are from a reversal of NaDTaH – see TONE.

These overly stretched “cognates” include:  ABSTAIN, ATTEND, ATTENUATE, CONTAIN, CONTEND, CONTINUE, DETAIN, DETENT, DISTEND, ENTERTAIN, EXTEND (see EXTEND), EXTENUATE,  HYPOTANUSE,  INTEND, LIEUTENANT, MAINTAIN, OBTAIN, OSTENSIBLE, PERTAIN, PERTINACIOUS, POLYTENE, PORTEND,  PRETEND, PROTASIS, RETAIN, SITAR, SUBTEND,  SUSTAIN, TANTRA, TAENIA,  TENABLE, TENACIOUS, TENANT, TENEMENT, TEND, TENET, TENDER, TENDRIL, TENDON, TENON, TENOR, TENSE, TENT, TENURE (see TENURE), TENUOUS, TENUTO and THIN   .
