Roots

RUMBLE (a heavy rolling sound) is from Middle Dutch rommelen.  רעם R[A]h’M is to rave, rage, roar or thunder (ISamuel7:1; Psalms96:11).

In Psalm 98:7 the “thunder” (JPS) is the roar of the sea.


Branches

Both  R[A]h’M (roar) and NaHahM (roar) might ultimately echo the liquid (L/R)-nasal (M/N) of LION (from Greek leon – see   LEOPARD).  GRUMBLE, along with GRIM, GRIMACE, and POGROM, are from Indo-European “root” ghrem (angry). This theoretical root is from  K[H]aROAN (anger -Nehemiah13:19) or an M213 metathesis of  our Resh-Ayin-Mem RaGHaM (to RAGE, rave or roar). Russian and Serbo-Croatian grom, like Hebrew  RaGHaM, both mean thunder.  Variations on Resh-Ayin-Mem thunder include Czech hrom and Japanese raimei.   See GROAN, similar to GRUMBLE, for the link between heavenly and earthy RAGE (Resh-Ayin/R-GH). Human disappointment and anger are registered in the GaROAN or throat – see “anxiety” and choking at HANG.
