Roots

The Indo-European “root” of STIR is twer - 1 (to whirl, to turn).  Yes, a coffe cup can be STIRRED, but this is not the STIRRING up of armed conflict.

צרע TSaR[A]h is to sting;  צרעה TSiR[A]H is a stinging insect. Like the wasp or hornet of Exodus 238, which is the “bees in a bonnet” civil strife that thins out the enemy, and facilitates  Israelite conquest.

The more common, less figurative “sting” is     עקץ [O]aQeTS  (sting, point, or prick). This similar Tsadi/TS reversal to an English ST-word is seen at “STICK


Branches

The AHD’s alleged cognates of STIR are STORM, and TRB turning words seen at “DIS TURB: ”  DISTURB, PERTURB, TROUBLE, TURBID and TURBINE.
