Roots

A SCENE is a setting or locale; the given etymon is Greek skene (a tent, covered place, stage). No Indo-European “root” is available.

שכן   SHeK[H]eN is to dwell (Genesis 9:27) or to  rest (Deuteronomy 33:20). S(H)eeKOON is housing; M’SHKahN is a "dwelling" or the abode in Numbers16:24 which specifically included tents (verse 26).  SHeeKOONaY B'OHaLeeYM ("tent dwellers") appears in Judges8:11. A SCONCE is a shelter or hut. See ENSCONCE. In dissecting SKN, SK means "covered" and KN means "place."
