Roots

Latin rivus (brook) is the given, fanciful folk etymology for RIVAL, as water rights may cause a RIVALRY. Webster's is honest enough to add "but influenced from another unknown source." Going to the Source, there is a ReeY[V] (quarrel, dispute or "strife") in Genesis13:7.  Rah[V] is to STRIVE, whence STRIFE.  Rather British or old-fashioned for Yanks is the Resh-Bhet word for quarrel: ROW (also at RIFT.).


Branches

MayReeY[V] is a fighter or disputant.  MiReeYVaHis STRIFE (Numbers20:13); QRah[V] is battle (Psalms144:1). For antonyms see RHAPSODY   Resh-Bhet shifts liquids to R-W,

R-P and R-F words, as a ReeY[V] is a  ROW (argument), a SCRAPor a violent RIFT

(see RIFT).. Reverse the Resh-Bhet / R-V or  R-W to get WAR.  Werra is strife in Old High German. Rivalry in Polish is rywal(izacja). More Resh-Bhet tearing apart at ORPHAN.
