Roots

Old English sittan (to sit) and Latin sedere (to sit) are linked to Indo-European “root” sed (to sit). Man was given a SEAT,  SHaiT (buttocks - Isaiah20:4), on which to SIT or to SHahT (place, station, set - Genesis41:35) himself.  SHahT is a foundation or basis, as is a  (Yi)$OAD (Leviticus4:7).


Branches

The cognates of SEAT listed at Indo-European “root” sed include: ASSESS, ASSIDUOUS, DISSIDENT, ERSATZ, HOSTAGE, OBSESSION, POSSESS, PRESIDE, RESIDE, SADDLE, SEANCE, SEDATE, SEDENTARY, SEDILIA, SEDIMENT, SEE, SESSION, SETTLE, SEWER (see below), SIEGE, SITZBATH, SOIL, SOOT, SUBSIDE, SUBSIDY, SUPERCEDE and SYNIZESIS. See CHAISE, INSTALL and SET.

Deriving SEWER and SEWAGE from an invented S- D root meaning “to sit” doesn’t smell right.  Tsadi-Vav-Aleph in Zecariah 3:3 means filthy.  TSoWAH means filth or dung. Tsadi-Aleph means outgoing, here for the digestive system (see EXIT). The Tsadi-Vav provides the

S-W of SEWER.  Even the Zayin-Resh of ZaRahM (pour – Psalms 77:18 and ZiRMaH (emission – Ezekiel 23:20) has better sound and sense as an etymon for SEWER than sed (to sit).


Bible Verses

Isaiah 20:4 כן ינהג מלך־אשׁור את־שׁבי מצרים ואת־גלות כושׁ נערים וזקנים ערום ויחף וחשׂופי שׁת ערות מצרים׃

“so shall the king of Assyria lead away the captives of Egypt, and the exiles of Ethiopia, young and old, naked and barefoot, and with buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.”
