Roots

There is no Indo-European “root” for SKIP.  Lexicographers take a pass on this by saying it mightg be a shortened form of SKIPPER.   It is unclear how ships skip.

Swedish dialect does have a. skopa  meaning "to skip, leap."

  פסח  Pa$a[K]H is  to pass over or SKIP over  (Exodus 12:13).   

An M231 metathesis would bring this origin of Passover into view.


Branches

IE cognates and Edenic related words are available at  PASSAGE and PATIO. An Asian word meaning leaping and omitting  ought to reverse the P-S Edenic etymon or the bilabial-dental of its many similar wiords. Japanese tob asu does so.
