Roots

SCABBLE is from Indo-European “root” skep (to cut, drag, hack etc.).

קצב QaTSaBH is "to cut off" in IIKings6:6; its definition includes "to stipulate" and "to determine."   The next of kin is  קצב QaTSaBH (SHAPE, cut or "proportions") in IKings6:25. Put the two together to get the kind of SHAVING or SHAPING that a (LAND)SCAPER or gardener does. For the “drag” part of the Indo-European “root”, there’s סחב $aK[H]aBH, to drag, II Samuel 17:13 as well as Phoenician, Ethiopic and Arabic. The  ק Koof/Q and   צ Tsadi/TS switch places in an M213 metathesis.


Branches

QeeTSaH is to cut off;  QaTSeH is an extremity or edge;  KeeTSay[A]h is to trim. Cognates like SHAPE, SHAVE and SHIP help to document the Koof/K  to H shift that is common from Edenic (and Indo-European “root”s) to English. Doubtless, this is why the Koof looks like an extended Hey. There is also Sha[K]HaPH (to shave off, make thin) related to the consumptive condition of SHa[K]HePHeT (Leviticus 26:16).

Other cognates listed at Indo-European skep include BATHYSCAPE, CAPON, SAPSAGO, SCAB(ROUS), SCAPHOID, SCAPULA (this shoulder term also resembles the Hebrew shoulder, the KaSaiPH or KaTaiPH), SCOOP (minus the S it resembles the cuplike  KahPH or palm of the hand), SHABBY, SHAFT, and SHIP. The Japanese shoulder stops at kata. SHIPSHAPE is one of thirty -SHIP words, not counting related terms like (FRIEND)SHIP or (SPORTSMAN)SHIP.    SKIFF and SKIPPER belong in the same boat. Chinese only pronounces letters 2 and 3 of Koof-Tsadi-Bhet as a cut (style) is a ts'aifa.

SHIP and its cognates are traced by the AHD to the Indo-European “root” skipam (“Ship. Germanic noun of obscure origin.”) Curiously, the root has a fricative, plosive and nasal like $PeeYNaH, ship (Jonah 1:5).  The H and K of SHIP, SKIPPER and skipam sounds like a Germanic hardening of the Hey. The Japanese ship lists to the second part of the Edenic etymon: fune.

Other alleged cognates of SCABBLE printed here include APOCOPE, COMMA, HASH, HATCHET, KOPECK, MANGE, NUTHATCH, PIOLET, QUEBRACHO, SCABBIES, SCABBY, SHAVE

And SYNCOPE.  See SHABBY and SYNCOPATION.
