Roots

SHAKE  has no alleged Indo-European “root”.  Icelandic skaka and Danish skaga, to veer, shift, shake, are  the oldest known etymons.  The reduplicated SHeeKHSHayKH means to shake (EDK).  In the manner of many Edenic words, the same word can also mean the opposite: to appease, pacify, calm (EDK).  While not a foreign word, E.D. Klein thinks it is imitative.  Another built-in opposite, a Shin-Khaf word of settling down, is seen at ENSCONCE.


Branches

Kiowa Indian za(n)ge or ca(n)gemeans shake. A ZaK(aiN) (old person) might shake.  See SEISMIC for a זע Zayin-Ayin shaker.  SHOCK is also addressed at SEISMIC.
