Roots

From Old French parc, a PARK is an enclosed area set aside (or broken off) for special use. PARKING a car is not placing something in a pace (or set-off enclosure like a PARK) but breaking off from one's traveling.

 PeReQ is just such a break or "section."  PeeRQaH is a division;PiReeYQaH is breaking up; PaRaQ is to free or save;  PaRahQ is to sever, break or remove (Genesis27:40).


Branches

PaRoaK[H](eT) is a curtain (Exodus26:31); a similar space breaker is Greek phragma (fence - source of DIAPHRAGM). Cognates of DIAPHRAGM at Indo-European “root” bhrekw (to cram together) are FARCE, FARCI FARCY, FREQUENT and INFARCT. Closer relatives of your neighborhood PARK are PARCEL and PARQUET.
