Roots

Slang aside, a SCREW is metal fastener with a helical thread.  The curly shape is found in nature on the rear end of a pig, and so the source cited by the AHD is  “Latin scrofa, a sow (rooter, digger).”

 This Latin word is from one of two Edenic metathethis-driven etymons, depending on whether or not the S is historic, and whether the animal or its rooting ability is the issue  . 1)   חפר K[H]oaFeR, digger – see  GOPHER.   T he Indo-European root prefers this, as their “root” is scer- 1 (to cut).    2)   חזיר  K[H]aZeeYR is a pig

—see HYOSCYAMINE.

The   חזיר   [K]HaZeeYR (pig) will חזר   [K]HoaZeR (return) to food    it had already eaten and expelled.


Branches

  The “animal”  etymology, rather than the “rooter, digger” etymology merits the heading since the given cognate of SCREW is SCROFULA ( a swine disease ).
