Roots

An OOZE is a gentle flow; to OOZE is to exude a fluid. Anglo-Saxon wos (sap, juice) and Indo-European “root” wes (wet) are the given etymons. It is notable that wos is "sap" backwards (W with a bilabial shift becomes P). Avraham Van Riper suggest PUSS, which has no Indo-European “root”. A vowel plus S would make a juicier etymon still. [A]h$eeY$ is juice (Songs8:2);  [E]eY$aH is to squeeze or press.


Branches

To treat Indo-European wes (wet), (Di)BHaS(H) is dew or honey and  (Ya)VaiSH means dry.  The same bilabial-fricative sound of dryness is heard in the Spanish pasa ( raisin or dried grape).

See BISON, "SAP" and SAUCE.
