Roots

SMASH, to ruin completely or break into pieces, is matched by צמת

TSeMeS (to destroy, smash or make smaller - Laments3:53). Webster's offers, "perhaps from MASH, "while the AHD comes up with," perhaps a blend of 'smack' and 'crash.'"


Branches

TSaMaQ is to shrink or wither; the opposite is TsaMK[H] (to sprout or spring up). The TS-M root of making smaller is best seen with TSiMTSOOM (condensing, confining, contraction).

SMALL deserves a better Indo-European “root” than melo or smelo (small animal – see SMALL” ). Enlarging the TS-M family is TSaNOOM (shrunken, meager). SKIM, linked to Old Norse skemma (to shorten) may be a #2-#3 letter swap of TSaMaQ  (to shrink). (Na)SHahM is to be destroyed.

For more destructive SM  terms,  see SMITE.
