Roots

The so-called Indo-European “root” of PECCADILLO is  is ped - 1 (foot). To get from a foot to a transgression, the AHD  cites Latin peccare as meaning to stumble or sin. This is a lexical sin, as proven by the French sin,  peche (pronounced pesh-eh).  The Ayin of   פשע PeSH[A]h (sin – Genesis 31:36) could provide a guttural, but more likely we have the Western confusion of Hard C and soft C.


Branches

The Spanish sin is pecado.  The soft and hard C is more confusing than any versatile Edenic letter.  Cognates include PECCA BLE, PECCANT end   IMPECCABLE.
