Hebrew Word









PART is said to come from Latin pars and the Indo-European “root” pera (to grant, allot).  Latin PARTICULAR is particula.

פרט P'RahDT is a PARTICULAR or detail; פרט PaRaiDT is to specify or be PARTICULAR;  P’RahDTeeY means private, single or SEPARATE. פרט PeReDT in Leviticus19:10 infers "individual" neglected grapes (as translated by Aryeh Kaplan).   A metathesis brings synonyms, as פטר PaDTaR is to separate (ISamuel19:10);   פטר PeDTeR is that which separates or breaks open the womb in Exodus 13:1 . The nations are divided or PART company with the Pey-Resh-daled,   פרד PaRahD, of Genesis 10:5.

More Pey + liquid differentiation at the פ-ל of PLEA.


P'ReeYDaH is a PARTICLE;  PaROOD is SEPARATE or APART; and PaROOD is SEPARATION or DEPARTING. PaRaD refers to wings that are SPREAD APART.  PiRooDoaT are scattered seeds in Joel 1:17.  The Indo-European “root” separates PART from APART and DEPART; the only like-sounding cognates listed are BIPARTITE, COMPARTMENT, and IMPART.

Any PARTIAL, PARTISAN movement infers being set apart from another PARTY where individuals are PARTNERS in a group effort. These three built-in opposite of  PARTISAN, פרט PRT,  and    פרד PRD  bilabial-liquid-dental break-offs is the reverse:  dental-liquid-bilabial צרף    (to attach. join – see PARTNER.   FRATERNITY sounds akin to Peh-Resh-Tet. Perhaps a PATRIARCHAL society named the FATHER and BROTHER for the male members who IMPART or split up ( BoTaR or BHoTHaR is to cut up or PART) the inheritance, and for those BRATS who receive a fraction of the ancestral field -- the precious, life-sustaining BeTeR (piece, part - Genesis15:10). In  Modern Hebrew PROPERTY that is private, set APART,  is PRaDTeeY. Cain’s FRATRICIDE indicate’s his reluctance to PART with the share given to brother Abel. (The name QaYiN , Cain, means “possession,” so he loathed losing half the world, instead of being grateful of inheriting half the world.)

PRT or PRD dominates “brother terms like fratello (Italian), frate (Rumanian), bruder-broder (German, Swedish, Danish) and brat (Russian, Polish, similar in other Slavic).  It can be assumed that other FR or BR words for BROTHER  (like French frere), lost that dental at the end of the root. The same can be said for many variations of words like padre and pateras – father in Spanish and Modern Greek.  The FATHER, vater in German, may be a metathesis of the Pey-Resh-Tet or bilabial-liquid-dental root of SEPARATING. Darth Vader, an infamous film father, is merely the Dutch father.  The father is the property IMPARTER, just as “king” means the ring–giver. Many “father” and “brother” words are forms of Edenic Pey-Resh-Tet or bilabial-liquid-dental.

If there is a connection between Latin pater (father) and the ("unknown origin") source of a dozen PETRO- words including PETROLEUM, PETRIFY and PETER, it may be that a petros (rock, stone in Greek) is but a PART or piece of a larger geological whole. PaROOR (crumb, fragment) best demonstrates the fractional sense of thesePeh-Resh or PR words  --see FRAY). FRITTER (a small piece, fragment) is related. Greek petros, stone, is older than Latin petra, rock, as it is clearer that a stone is a particle of a larger rock. The ancient city of PETRA, in Jordan, was carved out of a mountain.  Scholars imagine that PETROGLYPHS  (rock carvings) are the oldest forms of writing, but they may soon discover that their theories of human literacy are not carved in rock.  Languages that have different words for stone, like German Stein, will borrow the word PETROLEUM (etymologically a stone word) because it is so technologically significant, and PETRODOLLARS for its economic significance.

One can be PARTICULAR or a PARTIALIST about certain foods; PARTIALITY is usually about judgement; a separable PARTICIPLE is often about math. PARTICIPATING might sound like group-oriented PARTICIPATION, but it is, etymologically, “taking PART” of something as one’s personal share.

Pey-Resh-Dalet , פרד     PeReD (mule – II Samuel:13:29) is related to PaROOD, separate or APART.  This beast is mateless, and APART, is sterile, and is a Biblically forbidden mix between a horse and donkey. PeReD is like the Arabic term for an odd number fard, since the sterile mule is indivisible.  Arabic farad means single. The PRD mule named the German horse: Pferd.

The encroachment of enemy camps means war, military engagement. That is why Q’RaBH (battle) is akin to QaReBH (getting close).  Peace is about the opposite, the SEPARATION of antagonists. This is why Germanic “peace” words  are from PaReD (to separate). They are German Frieden, Danish ,Swedish and Norwegian fred, and Dutch vrede.  Indonesian is not Germanic, but perdamaian (peace) may reflect similar thinking, and use of the same  Edenic etymon. Japanese pittari (exactly) should be an M132 metathesis of PRaDT and particularly B’PHRaDT (particularly). 

Webster’s online dictionary lists over 20 PRT words like PARTICULARIZE.

As they define foreign cognates, more English cognates appear. Czech podrobnost means PARTICULARITY, and the PDR echoes Pey-Resh-Tet

(M132).  Czech prosty means “private,” like PRaDTeeY above. In both Frisian and Rumanian apart means SEPARATE.
